*RB-JOSEPH ADDAI - PRESS CONFERENCE *
RB-JOSEPH ADDAI (on hearing the name Edgerrin James a lot recently) Sunday, April 30, 2006
"I heard it a lot. He's one of the best running backs in the NFL. I knew the situation in that the Colts needed a running back and I feel like if I just come in and do what I do, give one hundred percent, I'll be O.K.."
RB-JOSEPH ADDAI (on if he saw the Colts play a lot while in Baton Rouge) Saturday, April 30, 2006
"I got a chance to watch them. The Colts do pretty much some of the things we did at LSU. I know I need to catch the ball, run the ball and block and I think that's a good situation for me. I feel like I'm a good fit for here."
RB-JOSEPH ADDAI (on his reaction for finding out he had been drafted by the Colts) Sunday, April 30, 2006
"I was real excited because there are a lot of good players on this team. I'm honored and blessed to be around so many good players who are on this team."
RB-JOSEPH ADDAI (on playing different positions on offense in college) Sunday, April 30, 2006
"I think it make me a better player. It made me look at the offense from different angles. I understand the offense more. I played full back, running back and receiver. Now I understand the schemes of the blocking better and what's going on around me, so I feel like it had helped me as far as being a better player. I feel like I'm a football player. Not just a running back. I feel like I can do more than just one thing. That's what I can bring to the table."
RB-JOSEPH ADDAI (on playing in his senior college) Sunday, April 30, 2006
"A lot of people were telling me for my senior to get ready for the draft, but I'm the type of person that plays with his teammates and I wasn't going to let anybody down. I was limited in what I was doing, but I wasn't going to miss any games."
RB-JOSEPH ADDAI (on sharing time at LSU) Sunday, April 30, 2006
"At LSU we had a lot of great running backs, so the situation there was anybody could go in the game and get the job done. My whole thing is when I get my opportunity, I need to take advantage of it and now I think I'm in the same situation. I don't know how the situation is going to be, but going into practices, I'll go in just trying to compete with everybody else and give one hundred percent. At the end of the day, I'll feel good about that."
