It's to be expected but it is indeed here. -- there are people here that you know a big who gets big saints fans and and love the acquisition -- -- this text they just pops up ask your bills reporter. Quoted bird is that good why did the bills let him go. The bill didn't want to ago. They actually immediately huge offer and there were kind of it's pretty feature dramatic situation for the courses. Relief -- well -- and the bill -- franchise tag him. It was essentially -- day. Weren't sure if they were going to do they're they weren't sure how -- which it into like that -- -- -- -- As a really plays in the aggressive style. Tech defense that adjective. In in -- patent defense last year so. They -- -- played the wait and see approach. They knew he was a good player and they -- want to leave him last year and so that franchise tag in the in -- -- and in Eugene Parker -- really take well to that and that was part of the big reason why the relationship became a pay equity. And -- words. Has attempted to in camp. Sign that franchise tag tender. Where -- at the very last vote for the bill circuit used the to -- -- roster exemption. Soria. That attending camp or getting to that in time. For the regular season so he -- at the last minute a lot of people thought he was.

Its first seat in the annual it's kind of a one trick pony. -- midnight interception and made Pro Bowl in his rookie year but you really want an all round in what impressed him most about Petersburg. Is the -- it. He has turned himself in to that because we're in Italy he was a quarter -- the interstate. From war and so. So he had the ball skills of an ever stop that let the speed had been at it like quarter. But his instincts are top -- in -- what he's done. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Where is -- where words in its first year he. Because missed the boat. A lot of those things where it's like it's a 401 trick pony that respects so. Are open to all of the is instinct will bring into play. Wait wait for a lot CP out there that makes him so special so. I think he's certainly one of the best in the game and I -- the -- -- certainly going -- -- him because -- that they are -- that the senate despite. There rugby and being a terrible score years. Let me ask you one more question Joseph because you know we're ruled by the clock and it goes through a text that comes in and keep in mind you know talking to buffalo radio you're talking here in New Orleans -- or anchor bar for wins.
