With everyone talking about how great you are, do you want to focus on what you can improve on going into your third year?

Yes. For me, I know Im going to have to block a lot better. I think it is going to help me with my routes. Especially when they have me double-teamed and I stay in there and block. Or I am pushing people off the ball, and showing that I can do that, being an every down tight end and play 65 snaps a game. I think that is only going to help me. I continue to work on that and my footwork. I have gotten a little bigger. I am trying to develop in my third year of football.
How much bigger are you?

I still weigh the same but I can list it a little bit more now. Im about 265. I was at 270 last week. I play probably around 265.

What do you think about Coach Vitt having a list of things that you need to improve on?

Coach Vitt is always hard on me. He is always talking to me. Always telling me that I am a quiet leader on the team and that I have to lead by my play. I have to lead by how I hustle, my passion for the game, and that is really some of the things he is talking about. I am still a young player. I have been in the NFL for two years and I have been playing for two and a half. I only think I can go up from here. With Drew (Brees) always on top of me and Pete (Carmichael), I am definitely going to continue to get better just one day at a time.

What can we expect to see this year that we didnt see last year?

I really just want to do a play or do something that helps this team win every game. I think, another thing is to get a bunch of yards after the catch and focus on that. Focus on protecting myself, getting my shoulder down, and pushing for those extra few yards.

Hard to imagine he can still get better. I think Gronk's record is toast this year!

This guy has ultimate drive. I cannot imagine him getting much better. Cool that he holds himself accountable is humble. I hope he is a Saint for life.
