  1. Wide receiver Golden Tate

"There's a wide variety of plays and a lot of things we can do, which is the exciting part. I don't see us being predictable this year. I think with Jim Bob and the personnel he has lined up, we're going to be exciting to watch."

  1. Cornerback Darius Slay

On his relationship with Quandre Diggs and Nevin Lawson

"We're a young group, we fit in with our styles, we just be chilling, hanging with each other. The veteran guys hang with each other, but me Quandre and Nevin, we're the three amigos."

"I feel old. It's crazy how it happens. You feel like you're the young guy for forever and then all of a sudden ... that's the NFL, they're always trying to bring in competition, bring in young guys, and we're no different. We've got a bunch of competitions at a bunch of different positions and it's going to make us better."

  1. Offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter

On if this is what he's always aspired to do

"When I was in college, I was in a good quarterback room, we ran sort of a pro-style offense. I learned a lot there, and I kind of always said that was kind of my best class in college, you know, I learned a ton. Doing that kind of developed the love for it and the interest in doing what I'm doing now. You take some bruises along the way, you have your highs and your lows along the way, and I'm glad to be here in front of you guys talking about almost nothing."

  1. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin

On Ziggy Ansah

"When your better players are your humblest, your hardest working, I think that sets the tone through the organization. You don't have a lot of 'me' guys, you have a lot of guys that are concerned about the team, and how well the team does, and that's good for us."

  1. Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata

On rookie A'Shawn Robinson

"A'Shawn's awesome. He's friggin big and strong and he's going to be a great student of the game. He pays attention, always corrects what he needs to correct, and he's going to be a great player."
