“It’s been great being in Hawaii so far. The weather here is great and everything is so green. The sun is always out, unlike Detroit. The people here are great. They’re huge fans and they treat us like their own.
“We had our first practice today and there’s a luau tonight. I’ll be tired early because of the time change – I’ll be ready to go to bed. But I’ll probably go to luau for a little bit and have a good time.
“The other guys in my group are Larry FitzGerald, Roddy White and DeSean Jackson. I know all of them – I’ve run across all of them off the field at one time or another at endorsements or other events like that. Everybody’s pretty cool.
“We just talk about football, what we learn from our coaches, things like that. We share our techniques. There’s some guys on the team I hadn’t run across before, but I met everybody today – it’s been nice to meet those guys.
“The quarterbacks are Drew (Brees), Vick and Matt (Ryan). I talked with all of them – I talked with Matt for a little while earlier. I didn’t talk with Vick too much, but I’ll talk to him eventually. So I got familiar with those guys and having them all throw to me was cool, too.
“It’s an all-star line-up. It’s sweet to be there and be teammates with those guys. They’re good guys, too – good guys to talk to. Everybody’s real cool.”
