"No matter how much you want to play that down, he's one of, if not the greatest player in that organization's history and they made a decision to let him go and we were fortunate enough to grab him," right tackle Zach Strief said. "I don't know that there's grudges held, but I think it would be inhuman not to have a desire to play well against your former team. ... We're excited to get to go out and play with him."
"What has become more and more an emphasis for us is maintaining balance to keep Drew clean," Strief said. "He's always going to be the engine as long as he's here, no matter how old or how frail people think he's getting."
