Why was New Orleans the right fit for you?

I felt that it was the right fit for me. I saw the way they were using Reggie (Bush) so I felt this was the right place for me.

How do you address the comparisons to Reggie Bush?

I just want to come in here, have fun, and make plays. That's my main focus.

How did Drew Brees influence your decision to come to New Orleans?

We had worked out together throughout the spring. He kept telling me the whole spring it is where I needed to be.

Is it easier coming to play with someone you have experience with?

Coming somewhere new, you want to know somebody just to show you the ropes and stuff like that.

Did you think you could end up here before Reggie Bush was traded?

I kind of sensed it, but I wasn't sure yet.
