QUOTE OF THE DAY
Marcell Dareus, Buffalo Bills Defensive Tackle on the John Murphy Show
Q: It sounds like you’re what you’re describing is natural maturity and being in the league for your third year and what to expect.
A: To be with Kyle Williams and Mario Williams they showed me so much and told me how to stay focused this year. And kind of do what you’re supposed to do and just learn the league, watching film and breaking film down the way it’s supposed to be broke down, being consistent on your work. And being with those guys I just blossomed into the player I always wanted to be. I just have to build on that and stay consistent to be the type of guy I want to be known as.
