I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to become part of such a prestigious organization as the Cleveland Browns. I can’t wait to get started and acclimated to a new city as well as the team. I want to be able to contribute to the offense in any way I can, and I am ready to come in and work hard to make that happen. I enjoyed my visit there last week, and was very impressed with all of the people I met, including Mr. Heckert. I have also had the chance to speak with Coach Shurmur on several occasions and I am looking forward to the opportunity to play for him. Being taken this high in the supplemental draft and mentioned among the likes of the Bernie Kosar is a humbling experience in itself, as well as a dream come true.
