Thanks to one of the best P.R. staffs in the league, I just completed two hours of interviews with DeMeco Ryans, Mario Williams, Dunta Robinson and N.D. Kalu. Williams spent most of the time talking about his seven remote-controlled cars, and said one of them goes 70 mph. He also has a remote-controlled helicopter that he flies around his neighborhood.

Williams offered to take the entire defensive line to Brazil this past offseason, but only two players showed interest. In football news, Williams actually said he wants to break the NFL's season sacks record, and this seems completely reasonable to me.

Robinson has apparently had a great camp. After the season, he spent two months in Newark, N.J., working out at the same facility where he prepared for the 2004 draft. I'm told Robinson has made big hits in almost every practice session.

Ryans is an exceedingly nice kid. He's already emerged as the vocal leader of this young defense.

"I want people to stop thinking of us as an expansion team," he said. "It's about time we make a name for ourselves."

Kalu is the elder statesman of this unit. He and rooke defensive tackle Amobi Okoye are from the same tribe in Nigeria.

"He's the little brother I always dreamed of having," said Kalu, who has two older sisters.

Sorry this took so long. I'm up to five words per minute on the new Blackberry Curve.

One more thing: Eric Winston is the real deal at right tackle. Has great feet, and is powerful enough to fight off the bullrush.

Talk soon.
