Sports Radio Interviews " Blog Archive " Malcolm Jenkins: "We are not going to use everything that has happened as an excuse. Our expectations are still to win."
"To hear the media and fans and everything that is going on and hear so much stuff being said about our character and what type of people we are and not having an opportunity to tell our side of the story is probably the most frustrating thing and we won’t have that opportunity until all of the punishment and everything is done, but right now we are weathering the storm trying to stay busy and keep our minds off of it. We can’t control anything that is going on right now. All we can do is sit and wait and when that time comes we’ll have the opportunity to speak our minds and really try to save face I guess, but right now all we can do is focus on what we can and that’s being ready for the season and I think guys are excited to start back up next week."

Florio: Of course, there’s a chance that none are talking now on direct advice from the NFLPA and/or outside legal counsel. But the players can disregard that advice and talk, if they truly want to tell their side of the story.
