"So before I even talk about football with [the Redskins], I just try to express to them that I was a Broncos fan growing up, so Coach Shanahan coached those teams that I watched and that influenced me to play football. ... Would it be a dream come true to play for them? Yes it would ... But when it comes to just straight football talk, of course we can’t talk about the offense and things like that, but they try to make a point to tell me the kind of things they’re gonna try to do with me You know, they didn’t trade up to the second pick for no reason."
