“Going through all the defensive line drills, he was not winded,” Ryan said. “I wanted to push him. I wanted to see how this guy would compete through the drills and put him through drills that he wasn’t familiar with, which was linebacker drills… I couldn’t get him tired.”
“It is a lot harder to rush a passer from a 3-4 end,” Ryan said. “Some guys cause production. I think Quinton and Muhammad both cause production.
“It’s tougher down there. We were at our best when we had a guy like Shaun Ellismoving inside and rushing the passer. . . . The old saying was that the tackle’s job was to push the quarterback back and the outside guy’s job is to push the quarterback forward. With this addition, we’ll push that quarterback back a little bit.”
