“Not the way EB’s wired,” Reid said, via USA Today. “It’s weird, because we all want him here. It’s just, they couldn’t get (a contract) done.
“I think once he gets back in here, he’ll be OK around the guys and just go play. He’s pretty professional that way. He’s not really a disturber. That’s not how he rolls.”

With that being said, he’s going about doing it the right way in the classroom and on the practice field, which is to improve on a daily basis, to be more fundamentally sound, and I think the overall communication and the relationship he’s building with [quarterback] Aaron [Rodgers], I think it will pay dividends.”
