Welcome back to New England, Jason Webster. The Patriots newest defensive back spoke with the media this morning at Gillette Stadium — here’s a small slice of the Q&A he did with reporters:
- What were you doing when you were away from the game? I was enjoying watching my kids grow up and spending time with my wife.
- What was the break like? Difficult? At times. At times. I want to be playing the game.
- Did you think there might be an opening for you to come back here? I worked out and I hoped there was just an opportunity to play the game and play ball.
- You didn’t get a chance to show what you could do in training camp because you were hurt. How frustrating was that? It was difficult, because I wasn’t able to do that, but there was nothing I could do about getting injured. I went home, I worked out and prepared for an opportunity like this.
- Did they just say stay by the phone and keep yourself in shape because this opportunity may come up? Generally. That’s what they told me, just to stay in shape, because you never know what could happen, not just here, but anywhere.
- Did you have the chance to work out for any other team? This was one of the first workouts I had.
- Describe the comfort level you have with the system… Most of the things, I remember. The coordinators and Coach Capers do a good job reiterating the things we learned in training camp, so that helped out a lot.
- What does it feel like preparing for the Bills this week? Just like any other team. Knowing some of the history of Buffalo, because I was there last year. It’s a little bit different. Just like any other team.
- Does it help you prepare knowing some of those guys on the other side of the ball, moreso than other teams? Generally, the personnel at the skill positions — receiver, because I had the opportunity to go up against them last year — running back and also, Trent Edwards. He’s pretty good. He’s going to be a pretty good quarterback in the league.
- What makes Edwards so good? I think he understands the offense, and he’s doing a good job taking command of that offense. That’s what makes him better.
- Did you see that even as a rookie? Confidence. He wasn’t afraid to make a mistake, and I think that’s why he’s playing as well as he’s playing.
- On Lee Evans… Lee’s a good player. He’s works hard. He’s worked hard in practice, and he catches the ball well and he can flat out fly. He can run. He can run fast.
