"I think you start in the locker room by developing relationships."
Shurmur: (on Odell Beckham Jr.) "He is a tremendous player. He was high on our draft board in Philly. When you watch him on the field he’s outstanding."
"Everything starts with the offensive line."
"We’ll have an offense that we’ll consistently try to do things that our players do well. We’re going to play New York Giants offense."
