What was your reaction to the news that you’d been traded from the only team you’ve ever known, the Chiefs, to the Falcons?

You’ve said that when you retire, you’ll retire a Chief. Are the Atlanta Falcons going to get 100 percent commitment?

Any regrets about leaving Kansas City?

How involved are you going to be in the Atlanta community?

You’ve said you’re excited about playing with Matt Ryan. But the list of rookie QBs who suffered a sophomore slump is very long. What’s the next step for the young Falcon QB?

Last season, you played in a scheme developed by offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, that’s similar to the one employed by the Falcons. What role you want to play in Mike Mularkey’s scheme?

The Falcons jettisoned some veteran leadership in the offseason, including defensive veterans Keith Brooking and Lawyer Milloy. And Falcon coaches say that you can provide some veteran locker room leadership. How does a veteran like yourself, coming to a young team that made the playoffs last year, step into a locker room leadership role?
