TJP: I am sure you have heard about the Jets defense, and it’s reputation. At times last year, at least in the fans eyes, it took a step backwards. How are you going to help on the field, to bring it back to where we expect it to be? What are we going to see from Demario Davis?

DD: I don’t know what my role is going to be just yet, will find out more about it in mandatory minicamps. I am ready to contribute wherever needed. I have been told I will have a big role in sub-packages, especially covering TEs and backs out of the backfield. I will be blitzing a lot as well.

You have to understand, from what I have seen so far, it is a great defense, and has a lot of great players. There is not a lot to be done, maybe some tweaking, and if I can be a part of that tweaking, that will be great. The main thing is to be ready to contribute whereever I am needed.

TJP: There’s been talk of you on the inside and the outside. Do you have a preference?

DD: Nope, I can do it all. I have been blessed to have a career so far where I have been asked to do it all, and that has helped with my versatility.

TJP: If you weren’t in football, what do you see yourself doing?

DD: I see myself going back and being a high school football coach. I want to give back to kids and the coummunity. It’s about investing in lives. During the summer, I also plan on doing some missionary work.

We thank Demario Davis for taking the time, wish him luck in camp, and the 2012 season.
