“I don’t want my spot given to me, I want to earn it. There’s going to be trial and error. That’s how it is when you get used to a different organization. I’m always the type of person when somebody slaps me in the face, I’m going to get right back up and smack them in the face. I’m going to do whatever I can to help this organization, so we can win another Super Bowl.’’~Garett Bolles.
