On Brian Waters:
I haven't spoken with Brian in a while. But I was talking with him about the same time I was traded. He told me he was thinking about getting out of there too. He's in the same situation I'm in.
(Editor's Note: Emphasis mine. There was a small contingent of folks who thought the original report on Waters wanting out of town was some sort of fabrication from Jason Whitlock. Tony's words above clearly demonstrate that is not the case. Certainly not much of a question anymore but I thought it warranted a mention.)
I understand what Brian's going through. He wants to end it on a bright note and he can probably see the end coming down the pipe, too.
Brian is a pretty strong willed person and so are Pioli and Haley so hopefully there is a compromise.
On the secrecy with Scott Pioli:
It might not be good. From what I can tell, a lot of the media types are not happy with them because they're so tight lipped. One thing you can't argue with is that Pioli has built a dynasty up there in New England. If that's what they're used to, then I say let's see what they do first.
On what he expects with the Falcons:
Do I need to go out there and catch 90-100 balls? No, I don't think so.
