Who else does this interview sound like??
Q: Obviously OTAs are voluntary, but what is your reaction when a player chooses to work out on his own away from the team?
BB: It is what it is. We all know what the rules and the guidelines are and that’s what they are.
Q: Can it affect a player’s position on the team if he chooses not to be here?
BB: It is what it is. We don’t make the rules.
Q: When you have rookies that are unable to participate in this part of the offseason, how difficult does it make the start of training camp for them? Are they behind?
BB: Definitely behind. Any player that’s not out there is behind. The fact that they’re not out there is the best thing for them because they need to get physically healthy and rehab whatever condition they have so that’s more important than being out there. But if they were healthy and they could be out there, they would gain more from being out there than not being out there. We do the best we can with each individual player and do what’s best for him. Guys that are out there are out there. The guys that can’t be out there are working hard and hopefully they’ll be out there as soon as they can. We have guys in different stages of that process. When they’re ready, they’re ready and when they’re not then they’re working to get ready.
