Malcolm Kelly Mini-Camp Media Session

On how it feels to practice in the NFL for the first time:

"It is cool, especially having the guys come around actually trying to help you out. Santana (Moss, WR, #89), Antwaan (Randle El, WR, #82), even James (Thrash, WR, #83), all those guys are coming up to you and trying to help you out instead of you just learning it yourself, so that is helping out a whole lot. Another thing that is helping out is everybody has stuff to learn. It is a brand new offense, so everybody has stuff to learn. We are kind of on the same playing field."

On if the NFL is a lot faster than college:

"A little bit. The defensive backs break on stuff a little bit better, but I am already finding new little tricks and stuff that they are telling me to do- not showing your route as much and stuff like that. Once I learn the terminology I will be pretty good."

On the anticipation leading to mini-camp:

"I couldn't wait to finally get out there and catch the ball. That is what it is all about. You play football to do that. With a great organization, I don't think I could be in a better place. I'm happy to be here."

On how much he is picking up on the offense:

"I'm picking it up a lot. It's not as hard as you think. I studied the plays last night and the exact plays I studied last night are exactly what we ran today. It's not as hard as people try to make it out to be. This is just day one too, so we have a lot of plays to learn. If I just take it day-by-day, I feel like I ought to be pretty good."
