Q&A with Shaq Thompson

Does camp feel like college?

Definitely not. They don't treat us this well in college. But the dorm beds are a lot better in college.

How behind are you after missing much of the offseason program?

I just feel like it's about reps. I didn't get a lot of reps during OTAs because of the (time) I missed (finishing classes at University of Washington). I'm just playing catch up.

Are you nervous about having to catch up?

Nah. Football is football. It's about how hard I'm willing to work to get in the playbook and be caught up.

Why do you see yourself as a linebacker?

I just feel like that's where the team is, that's where the team leads (on defense). That's where the leadership comes from and that's where the heart and soul is.
