“We’ve Got The Beef”

There’s a good interview with Carl Nicks in FS Florida. Nothing earth shattering or anything, but some decent quotes, including what he thinks of rookies.
“I don’t want to get too close and then they leave or go to another team, so I just pretty much stay away from the rookies and let them do their thing.”
Kind of like the guy who works at the animal shelter who doesn’t want to name that new collie that just came in. But he does think the rookies are putting pressure on the veterans, specifically Doug Martin and LeGarrette Blount.
He works like he’s a free-agent guy, and that’s a good thing. He had Blount stepping his game up, and that’s good.”
Nicks likes the potential of the running game and, apparently, the size of the offensive line.
“We have the personnel, we’ve got the beef and we’ve got the running backs for sure.”
Nicks realizes that everything has been without pads so far, but he likes the potential of the offensive line on paper. He’ll get a chance to test that potential in pads next week when everyone comes together for a mandatory minicamp. Honestly, I think the offensive line is probably the best complete unit on the team at this point.
