The Herald-Leader’s Chip Cosby got a few minutes with Dicky the other day:
Q: What’s your take on the struggles of the freshman receivers?
A: It’s usually hard for all receivers when they first get here. Look at Steve Johnson. He’s in the NFL, and he couldn’t even get on the field two years ago. I know people have been hard on the young guys, but you’ve got to learn what to do. … Every now and then, you’ll get a guy like a Julio Jones, A.J. Green or Randall Cobb who can just come right in and play. But usually it takes time. These guys will get it figured out.
