HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on WR-Brad Pyatt as a receiver) Training Camp “I think he can improve a lot. I think he is still raw as a receiver.

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on WR-Brad Pyatt as a receiver) Training Camp

"I think he can improve a lot. I think he is still raw as a receiver. He's got some tremendous skills. He's got speed and quickness out of the break, and hands and toughness, which is what you need. Route-running and recognizing coverages and adjusting…it's pretty new to him but he's got some skills. He's polished as a returner. He understands how to catch the ball and what blocking is going to look like and he's got good vision, but he is just scratching the surface as a receiver."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on WR-Brad Pyatt as an undiscovered talent) Training Camp

"We had a great recommendation on him from Dave Logan, who played in the NFL and knows the game and had coached Brad. Obviously working him out, we saw the hands and speed and quickness, but I don't think we really knew how good he could be."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on RB-Dominic Rhodes looking different from last year) Training Camp

"He doesn't look all that different, but the thing he's been able to do is practice every day and continue to get better. Last year we were just so conscience of monitoring it and giving him days off and limiting his reps and those kinds of things. Now we're not really thinking about it. We're just letting him practice and I think that's the big difference."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on K-David Kimball) Training Camp

"David is actually kicking better than I was led to believe he would. He's made a ton of field goals for us. We haven't had a lot of live, rush situations but, he's much more accurate than maybe the scouting report was. He kicks a nice ball, he's got great rotation on it and kicks it high. That was what you heard about him–the leg strength and pop in the leg. He's got all that."

HEAD COACH TONY DUNGY (on the difficulty of keeping two kickers) Training Camp

"It will be tough. It's not something that you take lightly because you're taking a spot away from a guy who can conceivable play 25-to-40 plays in a game. But you'll do what's best for the team and if David ends up becoming a valuable weapon we'll use him."
