A quick signing here -- New Orleans but that word that's it's one of hours ago. Is getting here to visit and in the amateur four hours later used to with the New Orleans Saints you must have been impressed. Yeah I mean it. Everything went real real smooth -- got to you know hang out and go to dinner with you know the coaching staff and things like that so you know everything was. You know start off in the right direction and an -- and then come here and I'm excited to be here. What would you say. Is one of the greatest strength so -- won't go to -- top pause about Joseph gain you've reduced game. To -- ability to create turnovers you know I think that's been my dad my neck and Angela and I've been blessed with that ability just to create turnovers and do things like that so. That's just room looking forward to to -- to bring in here. And and then anything else says you know that I'm actually do you know that's -- Tom -- room and do whatever can do to make this team there -- to warm weather in. Yeah ourselves some. Come from Buffalo -- it doesn't get much colder than that so anything anything else's problem. How much you know about the the environment and the superdome when you played there as a as an opponent of the Saints last year but. And that's -- -- to a bit with the crowd noise in mind that defense. Yeah definitely I mean anytime you do as a player and you know their crowd noise in this rocking in there. You know that bag bodes well for you as a defense defensive players so I'm looking forward to experience -- that you know and being -- -- -- often injured crowd. You've played dynamite the team in Buffalo how similar do you know the schemes are what will -- Rob -- he's kind of similar to Rex Ryan and hence I'm Thomas Mike and the Mike fifteen years and how similar schemes and had a chance to look at that. You know I really had a chance to look at it. Did details of the scheme but. How many years and obviously more in depth with day and be able to look gay you know how's the similarities and stuff like damn good. From what I've seen you know just from. Observing you know looks really you know. He likes to attack in the you know be aggressive so you know -- some. Assume I'm gonna see more once I get indeed he'll learn everything so I don't -- you know say anything that I don't know too much about this point. -- -- the newest member of the Blanco Jerry's -- agreeing to a long term deal with the Saints -- now take us through. Only when you've gone out of high school and -- he goes filed official visits did you kind -- field again they may -- This is how I can't again when you had a opportunity to go visit some place in the long ago one but it seemed like this and similar. It is said yeah definitely similarities -- you know it is pessimism -- compared to is just coming out of college in their recruiting process so that's the biggest thing. -- -- because you know come out of college you know you don't pick your teammate they pickings. This is definitely a fun experience but. I'm glad to be here -- outside and I am so. They say in sports city you know certain things where you wanna be have been here in this face I think any human element you know finance -- money always matters but. To be able to to get a good contract wanted to shoot good for you your family but also be routine to contain the team take us through both. Side today. Oh -- that's the biggest things like you know to have both be able to have both is you know you can ask for a better situation and that's why I'm so excited to be here and be around you know. The coaches and you know adamant that all the players -- -- everything else hers as a great locker -- so I'm just he just looking forward again involved in you know. Come back here again working and you know do we need to do on the field. -- about x.s and those for psychology last night and to get to know -- resilient. Yeah we did. I went to the restaurant called emerald is yes those those -- really the food there so. Went to sleep. Yeah name's Jason record time you can cause a comment are -- in high school -- any names that to me as as he was -- environment. Us. Commitments. Everyone on this club just from my name bird bird man. -- letter. When you lead in the game these things you like to do down time in Dallas fan. It's just like to relax some pretty low key you know my play video games you know just you know. Who's. Which was the first time you heard it came across who get. Today -- He had just heard it coming up I was walking upstairs and there is you know immediately got people were telling me about. Who didn't try to break it down to me so I could understand what it what it means. Have you had it. Inexperience with some of the guys that are on the team has at any of the players so contact you reach out to be welcomed newborn. -- I don't even know my phone is like. I haven't even gone to a mile in my in my picks and -- -- stuff like that is just do nonstop so hard to be honest and you have had a chance to you know. Go in look through. And they might have to some of the numbers I don't are saved in there so. In my hand I'm just -- -- to meet them all and I just you know work and get that common goal that was before. -- just go more for you it. Having the luxury of playing with a guy like Drew Brees as a defender. Just talk about what that means for you live with a quarterback like that where you know that and maybe take some of the pressure off you as a -- as a defender. Well I mean. He -- have a quarterback like that it works it definitely benefits a guy like me because you know if you can jump out and get a lead on teams early. You know then makes them one dimensional and then you can pin your ears back and you know what I'd like to do is create turnovers so that puts him no one dimensional you know. Phase of this happening you throw the ball or do things like that and that's when I can you know. Help an impact the game. Loose Saints defense that makes eighteen series produced thank you so much so that's how welcome to New Orleans always remember the best thing. Appreciated thank them.
