Odell Beckham Jr. on his mindset heading into the season: “It’s a fresh start. It feels good to be able to put everything that has happened to you behind you and just get back to what you love, football.”

Odell Beckham Jr. on winning the Super Bowl: “You want to win at the end of the day and the only reason why you’re out here every day is to win the Super Bowl…to win championships so you can have rings under your belt and all those things. But as much of a team sport as this is, if an individual isn’t doing the very best he can do, he can’t help the team.”

Darius Leonard on the criticism of his draft selection: “I screenshotted it, and I put it on my phone.…so every practice, before every game, I look at it and it gives me the extra motivation to go out and prove I can make it in the NFL and I can play.”

Jalen Ramsey on pass interference challenges: “I don’t see them throwing out challenges all the time for pass interference unless it’s a crucial moment of the game, in which that case I agree, everything should be under a microscope so something like what happened in the NFC Championship Game can be reviewed.”
