Q: How has it been working with new defensive line coach Brad Lawing?

A: At first, it was rough. Now he's a real good guy. He's funny, and I like to play for the man.

Q: What made it difficult to adjust to him and his coaching style?

A: We had certain expectations coming from (Dan Quinn). And then we tried to make him DQ, which was wrong of us. So we just let it go. The personalities, that was the main thing to adjust to.

Q: What area of your game has Brad Lawing helped you improve on the most?

A: To use my hands. I'm more active with my hands, just certain keys that I hadn't learned before.

Q: How do you think Dan Quinn has done so far as defensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks?

A: I talk to him every now and then. His defense has been doing good. I don't watch football. I saw it on SportsCenter on Sundays.

Q: The team is off on Sundays. What do you do if you're not watching the NFL?

A: Play my (video) game or just chill with my son or watch “SpongeBob,” “Friends,” “Fairly Oddparents” or go on Netflix and watch some “Jackie Chan Adventures.” You know, the whole nine yards.
