In case you missed it, here is a transcript of Jake’s introduction press conference on Friday, his first appearance as the newest addition of the Tennessee Titans. Jake boarded a red-eye flight to get out to Tennessee for the press conference, only to return to Washington later that day.
And, here is an interview with ESPN Radio where he admitted he was even a little surprised that he was chosen so soon by Tennessee.
“I knew there was some interest,” Jake said of the Titans. “I just didn’t know there was enough to take me with that number eight pick.”
He went on to say that he is excited for the challenge of playing professional football and that he is looking forward to earning the trust of his coaches and teammates.
