QUOTES OF THE DAY
DOUG MARRONE, Buffalo Bills Head Coach
Q: You said during minicamp that you had to pull Kiko Alonso aside at one point because he was playing too aggressively in a non-contact drill. Was that almost a sign of how hard he would play once he got in to live game action?
A: I’ll go back to what we saw in college. He was a player that made tackles all over the field that stayed on the field for three downs that made a lot of plays. That’s one of the things that we liked about him, knowing that he could play three downs, knowing that he could run, knowing that he was physical. He played at a large stage, so it wasn’t too big for him and then when he came in right away it was like he’s moving a lot faster than everybody else. That’s what I talk about when you start seeing that separation. Our expectations are high and we’re excited about him. He’s actually getting better and better each week too, all little things that maybe people can’t see.
