CJ good to have you back allied man. I'm great at great are you I'm good I don't know how many guys like oh routier's but after getting shut down last year halfway through the season. At the halfway point I imagine there's something refreshing about putting back the helmet on getting out on the field and just running around. All you have as food for more than the study didn't it. We'll accurate quote beaten that you have to avoid being done those who is very Beckham field they're blocking. They may sound simplistic but what do you miss the most when you prepare all year long and halfway through they shut it down because of that injury. What are you find yourself missing the most in in just. In the locker room or on the field. They did you have been on the couldn't he dissolved is if you don't it is our most of them did so they put out. It would be glad you know worked so hard for a big Newton really is simply don't. Able to do it says he's not being out there or not there a way. If it the news of the. Your team's been a lot of season news here in a lot of familiar faces keep people who who led to Super Bowl appearances and super ball there now departed and I know it's only OTA's and week.

I guess and then moved to new coaching that's at their place on the great job wouldn't mind and he doesn't generate. How so CJ because we keep hearing the phrase hit the reset button in Seattle I know it's only routier's but it. Is aired this are different vibe around the buildings or something no. On the Nevada's. You know still a very direct them expectations though that he was. That doesn't sound there was no potential payment programs and eat so mr. hood on the that there you know there.

CJ says on the there about culture cliff favor earlier former teammate had some comments a few weeks ago about guys lost faith in Pete after the loss in the Super Bowl. And it's not fair for me to ask you about that because you were part of that team. But they're there's been a lot of praised by the same guys who used to say hey Pete put the onus on the players gave the players a lot of freedom and a lot of responsibility. How does Pete Carol give you the veterans the ownership in the leadership and the freedom of that team. Many people he put that in you know the better bet on. Make that it is let them know will be about equally pleased because I'm in the lead by apple. Let them facilities so the the way.
