"I'm glad to be here. I can't lie about that. I can't express enough how exciting it is going to be to play football for this team."

"All the places I've played have been great, but this is where it all started for me. I had a chance to go other places this year, but I want to play for the Cleveland Browns and wear the orange helmet. I want to play on the shores of Lake Erie in front of family and friends."

“You know, I think of myself as a big, bad football player, but the first time I play on that field in Cleveland in a Browns uniform, I'm sure the tears are going to flow.”

“They will have to kick me out the door. It took me nine years to get here. I had an opportunity to go to a couple of places, and it was first and foremost in my mind to become a Brown. If anything, this will add years to my career because of the excitement."

“I have every inclination in my body I'm going to come here and help the Cleveland Browns get better and make my personal dream become that much better.”

“I can't express enough how excited I am to play in front of the best fans in the NFL and one of the greatest organizations in the NFL.”

"This is the best day of my life, next to my sons being born. Every day, I wished this could happen. And now it has happened."

“I'm happy I got this uniform on. I'm happy to be in this building. I plan on trying to help this team get back to the glory days. I grew up watching Bernie Kosar and Webster Slaughter. I idolized those guys. I want to be that guy. I feel right now I'm going to be that guy."

"This is my ultimate dream. Now I'm a happy man. Now I can die happy. When the Browns called, that's when I knew the dream was becoming reality. I couldn't be closer to home than be on my couch right now. This is it. This is where it all started and hopefully where it's going to end. I can't explain how excited I am right now. It's a dream come true."

"People said to me, ‘Hey, man, why don't you go to Miami?  But I want to be in this city - in this town. This is where my roots are. Growing up with my little orange Hutch helmet watching the Kardiac Kids and the Bernie Kosar teams, I want to get this franchise back to those days."
