What was the moment when you knew that you could make it in this league?
Cornerback Nik Needham: "I don't know. That's a good question. I guess when I first got here, that was a little glimpse - in practice and training camp. But then obviously preseason didn't go how I wanted it to go, so that was tough. I guess when I got brought that fifth week and I played in the game and I saw - like I watched myself play and I was like, 'Wow, I really can do this.' It was cool to see that. I think I played fairly well my first game. I think that just helped stack the confidence and keep me going."
