On joining former Utah teammates Maake Kemoeatu and Dameon Hunter: "It's always good to see familiar faces, guys who you're cool with. They've helped out."

On the Ravens' secondary: "Ed Reed, Gary Baxter, Corey Fuller, I mean all those guys are real helpful. If you have a question, you can rely on them to help you out."

On whether he expected the fan turnout at camp to be so big: "Actually, yeah, I did. I mean, just because it's the NFL. It's still nice, though."

His most important camp item: "My daughter's picture. She's my inspiration."

How Utah is different from Maryland: "Well, the people here are a lot more diverse. Utah's great, though, it's a real friendly place. I haven't had too much time to explore Baltimore, though. It's all work now. Pleasure comes later."
