"We were able to bring in two high-quality starters at key positions," "Key because the left tackle position is protecting the blind side of your quarterback. Key because we talked about at the end of this season getting better in the middle field area, that we have to find ways to get better in that area and we certainly feel that Martellus is going to help solve that problem."
"We got two really fine people and very good players," said coach Marc Trestman. "We've got two quality guys, two guys that are ascending at their work at this stage of their lives. Every day we're going to try to get our team better and this was a great start to doing that."
