“It doesn’t matter what player here, we’re going to start that process and I’m not there yet,” Fox said, via Pro Football Talk. “…I’m looking forward to getting to know Jay. I just reminded him that this game’s only fun when you win, and we will.”

We’ll see first-hand when we get a chance to coach him,” said Ryan, via Ross Jones. “I’m excited about him though, I’ll tell you that much. Will we explore possible veteran free agents or draft picks out there? Absolutely. We’re going to explore everything to add competition because that makes your whole team better.
