Casserly said, "You leave either in December, or you leave in May after the draft. I didn't feel comfortable leaving at the end of a 2-14 season. I thought Gary was a tremendous hire. I wanted to go through free agency and the draft working with him. I enjoyed my time with him. I thought we had a productive offseason, and I think this team's headed in the right direction. I don't know that anybody in the league had a better offseason than we did."
