There was no hint from the college ledge… I listened very closely to those players and their backgrounds and whatnot, and especially in those draft meetings when you were talking about the first round player. There is no indication that we should be concerned about any criminal activity. It was a big disappointment. “
“The Dendre Baker thing was something we didn’t see coming.” “I read some stories that there were red flags about it, but not in the sense that you are at all concerned about criminal behavior. Obviously, it’s something that puts the organization to shame. It’s just something we have to face. It happens from time to time. Fortunately, 99.9 percent of our players are good citizens. This was something we just didn’t see coming and that’s something we have to face. “
