You started your career at Clemson as a quarterback, but moved to wide receiver. Who approached you first about making the move?
"Coach (Dabo) Swinney. I didn't want to make the move at first because I considered myself a quarterback. But Charlie Whitehurst was only a year ahead of me and he was playing so well. I knew moving to wide receiver was going to get me on the field sooner than if I stayed at quarterback. In the end, it worked out for everyone."
You played for New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan briefly during your last season in New York. What was he like?
"He's a fun guy to be around. He expects his players to be men and to do the right things on and off the field and take care of business. He likes to have fun. He likes to joke around, but he expects you to get the job done. I think he's a player's coach. He understands players and what they expect from a head coach. He knows how to practice and to push you enough, but also to give you a break when you need it."
What was your reaction when you got traded to Cleveland in 2009?
"I was surprised. You never think you're going to get traded, but it's a business and it's a part of the business of football. You think when a team drafts you that you're going to play for them your entire career, but that's probably a little naïve. It was nice to go to a place that wanted me."
Your first touchdown in the NFL was a ball thrown from Brett Favre. What was that like?
"It was against Miami. Brett was scrambling and I was trying to get open in the end zone. Brett found me and I caught it. I can't put into words what it was like to score my first NFL touchdown. And to have Brett throw the ball was an honor. Brett was a great guy. He was a team guy. People say a lot of things about him, that he wasn't a team guy or he didn't get along with his teammates, but I thought he was awesome."
Why did you sign with Arizona?
"It just seemed like the right fit for me. It was kind of like getting recruited again. I was looking for a good fit and this seemed to be the right place for me. Coach (Kevin) Whisenhunt is a great coach with a great reputation and this is a passing offense. I wanted to play for a team that threw the ball. We've got a great quarterback with Kevin Kolb and I think we're going to surprise a lot of people this season."
Larry Fitzgerald is one of the top wide receivers in the NFL right now. What's he like?
"I think people don't realize what a tremendous worker Larry is. He's the first guy in the film room and the last guy to leave the field. He has a tremendous work ethic to go along with great ability. I have that same kind of work ethic, so I love being around him."
