There are no excuses, but last week we didn’t even have red zone in the game plan, so that made it kind of difficult, but no excuses, we have to score down there and make the catches we’re supposed to. We’ll see this week.”'

The second-year wideout is going to play a lot this year and deliver solid production. He might be the most versatile receiver on the roster.'
