HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the turnover this past off-season) May 19, 2007

"I try to tell the team that all the time, people will look at this year when you lose this guy and that guy, Nick Harper…every year there's 14, 15, 16 guys that you are going to lose.  So at the end of three years your team is probably 60 percent turned over, but that's just the way it is.  So, you have to make hay when you're here and you have to be as coach, and as general manager, you have to be ready for that and just know that you are going to need players."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on LB-Freddy Keiaho feeling the weak-side position is his to lose) May 19, 2007

"Freddy will do well and I'm glad that he feels that way.  There are probably four or five other guys that feel the same way.  He will do well, I think.  He is well suited for it, he knows what is going on.  He will do fine."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY(on if replacing both corners in the off-season creates a problem) May 19, 2007

"You like that not to be the case, but it's like any other position.  You lose guys, you have to have guys there to go and usually it's been my experience when guys get an opportunity, they usually step up.  It's a little unusual to have to replace both guys, but we will do it."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on people not knowing Tim Jennings) May 19, 2007

"No, Tim is going to be a guy that is going to be like Kelvin Hayden, where he will get much better and will have a big improvement between his first and second year.  He didn't get to play all that much because of Marlin and Kelvin last year, but we have a lot of confidence in him.  "

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the young guys after a few practices with the veterans) May 19, 2007

"I thought our young guys were a lot better this morning, just in terms of trying to do the things that we worked on in the rookie camp and things getting a little bit more natural to them.  I thought their tempo was better this morning, so pretty normal progression. "

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on a 17th regular-season game possibly being played outside the United States) May 19, 2007

"I guess it could be good in a lot of ways, but there would have to be a lot of thought into the equity.  Obviously, if we have a 17th game in Toronto and someone else has it in Beijing, it's not quite the same.  So, there would be some issues, but I would think it would be something to investigate."
