Jim Schwartz on free-agent acquisition Jason Jones: "Jason is going to spend most of his time at left defensive end. We think his talents fit the other guys around him. [He] is a different kind of player than Cliff Avril. Cliff was an edge speed guy. Jason is more of an inside effect-the-quarterback [player]."

Here's how receiver Nate Burleson described the signing of running back Reggie Bush: "It was like a little kid having a new toy to play with on Christmas. That's exactly how I felt. This is like the fastest remote control car at Toys R Us and we got it, and we're going to have fun when the sun comes out. That's exactly what was going through my head."

Green Bay Packers

Packers running back DuJuan Harris has no problem with the team brining in additional competition this offseason. "Teams have to make decisions," Harris said. "They're just to help the team out. So whatever decisions they make, they have to run with it because it's going to help the team out. It'd be a privilege to play with whoever they decide to bring in. Once they get here, it's time to get to work. Let's get out here and get the job done."
