Did you know you drew quite a bit of attention for your dance in the locker room while with the Falcons after they beat the Eagles?

That was a big win for us and we were celebrating. No matter what, I’m always having fun.

Were you surprised to be traded?

I was trying my best to stay calm when it happened, but it was still a shock. I had been in two (defensive) systems in two years with Atlanta, so it was nice for me to have a fresh start.

Do you know anyone on the Eagles?

I played at LSU with (injured cornerback) Jalen Mills. He was the first person to call me after I got traded and he gave me some advice on a place to stay and things like that.
