What’s the toughest thing about putting pads on for the first time?
“I would say putting that extra weight on you, bending down, getting in your stance, and just the constriction on your legs but we have to play with pads on so you get used to it.”
Have you been looking forward to this day?
“Most definitely. It’s actually harder for us without pads because, with pads on, you can be a lot more physical and that’s when you are at your best.”
Talk about Charles Brown a little bit. He is working with the ones now but he has been through a lot and has been through a lot of injuries. You have been his teammate for a few years now so what is he like?
“Charles is cool. Charles has done well for us when he is in there but he just has to stay healthy and stuff like that. He is strong, he is a physical guy, he has strong hands, and as long as we keep him on the field, I think he is going to be a good player for us.”
Charles (Brown) mentioned he understands how you developed when you came into the league and how you dealt with nervousness and knowing that there was an opportunity there for you.
“He definitely knows that the opportunity is there. The opportunity was there when guys went down so he knows what it feels like to have his number called. Now he just has to keep getting better and keep staying healthy. The key with him is just keeping him on the field. If we can keep him on the field, he can be a good player for us.”
(Terron) Armstead certainly knows how you felt when you were trying to crack the starting lineup as a rookie?
“There’s no big difference from when I first got here. Those guys are doing well. They are working hard and we are trying to coach them up as much as possible. We want them to feel comfortable but right now, mainly for those guys, it’s just putting in the extra time off the field into the playbook so that they know what to do so when we get to the field, they can execute those things. That’s mainly what we are telling them. That and to go full speed but those guys have done a good job so far.”
There are a lot of new faces on the offensive line compared to the one that won the Super Bowl a few years back.
“There are a lot of new faces but I feel like we are a good offensive line. I think it shows in our statistics and we have one he best quarterbacks in the league, if not the best quarterback in the league, in Drew (Brees). He lights it up every year with the things that he does and that helps us be a little more aggressive. As long as we take care things like we have been doing in the past, we will be fine, but with the guys that we have now, we have been doing a good job.”

It looks like you picked up where you left off last year right?
“Yes, I’m just coming out here and making plays whenever they put me in the game. I am trying my best to go out there and make something happen.”
What do you take from the past couple of years heading into camp?
“Every year I learn something new. I am learning so much from my first year until now. I’ve always prided myself on catching everything, if it touches my hands; I’m going to catch it.”

Jahri Evans, on Charles Brown,
