On whether this is the last time he'll be in the locker room

* *

I don't know. It's hard to say. I don't know.

 

On weighing his attachment to Buffalo versus money

* *

Actually, I think my priorities are pretty straight. I put my family first, do what's best for them. Every decision I make, I put them first. That's what I'll do.

 

On being excited about the next three months with teams vying for him

* *

It's definitely going to be curious to see what's out there. I'm definitely a little anxious and curious just to see what's going to happen.

 

On learning from Antoine Winfield

* *

We talked, but I've been here and seen a lot of good players come and go, all the way back to Sam Cowart, Travis (Henry), Pat (Williams), Lawyer (Milloy), Antoine (Winfield), when Peerless was here the first time, we let a lot of good players go. It'll be curious to see.

 

On whether he'll make a quick decision

* *

I don't know. I've never hit the free agent market. It's a first time for me.

 

On letting 32 teams bid for his services instead of only the Bills

* *

I've always said that this is where I've started my career and I love to be a Buffalo Bill, but we all understand that this is a business we're in and right now, as I said earlier, I have to put my family first in whatever decision I make.

 

On putting a percentage on him coming back to the Bills

* *

That's definitely tough. Coach Jauron said it was going to be 62 degrees in Baltimore and it wasn't 62. I don't know. I really can't give you a number or percentage. When the time comes, I just have to put my family first and go from there.

 

On making a pretty good case for himself this season

* *

I think that I definitely put in some work. I think every year I put in more and more work, whether that's in the weight room or in the field or in the classroom. I pride myself on just putting in studying and preparing my body physically and mentally so that when Sunday comes, I'll be prepared. Whenever I look on film, I always say there's something; I'm the type of guy who thinks there's always an improvement to be made. There's always something I could do better. Like I said before, I feel like I'm the best corner and that's how it is.

 

On whether he weighs the fact that the Bills are on the upswing

* *

It definitely will be a big part of my decision. There definitely was a big improvement. I hate to revert to last year, but it was a big improvement. That's the one thing, whenever you look at a team, based on this year you look on what there record was last year and we're making steps to get better.

 

On whether he'd like to be on a playoff team

* *

Right now, my preference is that I would rather be a Bill. At this point, you really can't tell.

 

On how many teams are interested

* *

I get that from you guys, just watching Sportscenter to see who's interested. That's what I'll be anxious about, to see how many teams are out there and I guess you could say who will bid for services.

 

On being one of the top five players available

* *

I told you that. I told you I'm the best corner. I'm not surprised. I pride myself on, and I'm not being cocky, but for all the work I put in, I feel I'm the best.
