Jaguars WR Mike Thomas was kind enough to drop by BCC and answer questions from the fans. If you missed the chat, no need to fret as we've taken the liberty to transcribe it for you. We would once again like to thank Mike for coming on and answering all of the questions he did. We wish him the best of luck this season.
Question: Thanks for coming on, how have OTAs been?
Mike Thomas: OTAs have been good. It seems like everybody has one common goal, we are all out for the same goal and that’s to win.
Q: How are OTAs any different now that you’re in your 2nd year compared to your rookie year?
Q: Is your hamstring 100% healed?
MT: It’s not 100% but as long as Iong as I keep stretching and taking care of it it will endure and I will be ready to compete.
Q: A hamstring injury sidelined you last year during training camp as well. Did you ever injure it while at Arizona?
MT: That was actually the first time I ever had a hamstring injury.
Q: The 2nd WR position is kind of open. Do you feel you can take it? Who are the biggest rivals for the position?
MT: Of course I feel like I can take it and I want it. Everyone wants it, [Troy Williamson] and (Jarrett) Dillard are both strong contenders for the position.
Q: With Torry Holt gone, has anyone emerged as a leader of the WR corps?
MT:Mike Sims-Walker has taken the initiative to lead and he does a great job of it.
Q: How are Kassim Osgood and the UDFA rookies doing?
MT: Kassim is a nut but a heck of an athlete, big ol body. The UDFA rookies are doing the best they can. They are holding there own. Trying to gain respect and get a spot.
Q:Do you see any difference between last years tams and this years?
MT:Not anything drastic, everybody has bought into the team and realizes we all want to win and we need to work hard and have fun doing it. Our mindset is more focused on getting to some post season games and then to the Superbowl.
Q:What are you doing to stay healthy?
MT:Everything. Cold tub and stretching, trying to eat the right foods, getting rest and drinking a ton of water.
Q: What reciever besides yourself has impressed you the most in OTAs and minicamp? Do you see yourself as a slot or second wide out guy for this season?
