"I don't know too many guys who can compare their value to what I do," he explained. "I think that right away, no matter what situation I'm in, I'm going to contribute on special teams, which I hear from every single NFL team is a concern [for them]. I know a lot of guys who are here and who have been great in college didn't play special teams. But I've already played them throughout my whole career."
