Josh McDaniels press conference highlights

Today Josh McDaniels held a press conference at the NFL Combine. Here are some of highlights of what he had to say:
  • McDaniels had this to say about Brandstater: “We have high hopes for Tom. I’m sure he’s in our building today working to get better. He’s working really hard. I think that’s the goal anytime you take a player and give him the opportunity to learn like we did with Tom last year. Hopefully he has the opportunity to really progress this Spring and really be competitive when we head to training camp because the goal is never to take a player and put him as the third string quarterback then leave him there. We want him to ascend...We have high hopes for Tom."
  • Of Brandon Marshall he had this to say:“Brandon is a great football player, there’s no question about it. And he had a great season this year in terms of his production. A Pro Bowl year. Anytime you’re dealing with a players and contracts, you weigh a lot of things. Certainly the fact that we did [meet and workout a solution] already once, makes you believe that you can do it again and again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m really fond of him. He’s a good person and certainly played a big role on our team. There are a lot of things that go into, but we’re not at a point where we’ve made a decision on it.”
  • McDaniels also said he looks for character and production in players he drafts.

  • Second-year player Seth Olsen is a candidate to start at left guard and center.
