— Matt Moore is ready to handle whatever role is coming his way.
“I’ve seen a big difference in him. I’ve seen a guy a lot more confident, he’s moving a lot better. I’m real excited to see in these games.”
— Darren Rizzi said he has noticed a big difference on special teams in second-year defensive back Jordan Lucas.
“They’ve really laid a nice foundation. Their work ethic has been outstanding.”
— Darren Rizzi likes the example being set by core special teams players Michael Thomas, Walt Aikens, Damien Williams, Mike Hull and Neville Hewitt.
“Bobby is right where we want him to be.”
— Matt Burke says nickel cornerback Bobby McCain has been having a “great camp.”
“He definitely has a skill set that we like. He can really run, he’s long, he’s got instincts. I like what I see so far.”
— Lou Anarumo likes the potential of rookie third-round pick Cordrea Tankersley.
— Terrell Williams has had a favorable early impression of rookie defensive tackle Vincent Taylor.
“He’s very serious about football. He wants to get things right. He takes a lot of pride in being right.” — Frank Bush says rookie linebacker Raekwon McMillan has the right mental approach.
