On bringing in competition for kicker Billy Cundiff: "Yeah, we'll probably bring the best group of players to camp that we can. If we can get a kicker that is capable of competing with Billy, we'll do it. Do you have to draft a guy? Is there a free agent? Is there a guy that will be on the street. That's kind of hard to determine. We want competition for pretty much every position. I say that so I'm not ruling anything out, but Billy is our kicker. And I would anticipate Billy will be our kicker for the opening game of the season. I think he'll have a great preseason. I think he'll have a great season next year, but everybody gets competition and he's no exception."
On the importance of upgrading the offensive line: "I think we have to upgrade the offensive line. You ask, 'Can we upgrade the offensive line?' We have to upgrade the offensive line. I don't even know if we have a full complement of linemen to be on our 53-man roster right now. We don't have our five starters set. We have guys where [you say], 'Can they play a position or not?' We're talking aboutJah [Reid]. Can he play left guard? So we have to get better there just for the fact that we don't really have the numbers there right now. The thing I've learned over the years in Philadelphia and everywhere else, it starts with the offensive line on offense. The quarterback is obviously critically important, but if you don't have an offensive line, you can forget about it. We have to be able to build an offensive line."
On offensive line options: "We can go [get] a veteran free agent. We can go [get] a couple of draft picks. It [could be] the guy that maybe [was] cut at some point in time. We'll be turning over every stone."
