Green said he's built chemistry with Dalton in their three years together.
"He feels confident that whether I'm double covered, triple covered, it don't matter I'm going to come down with the ball," Green said. "And I feel like we've grown over these last three years and I feel like this year is going to be another key year for us."

It happens so quickly, I don't think the average person will notice it. There was stuff that was new to me. It’s science-based and applying it. But once I got used to it, it was fine."
House, a former MLB pitcher, has worked with Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Carson Palmer in the past. Dalton is entering a contract year and trying to improve on last year's success when he had 4,296 passing yards, 33 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. He has been to the playoffs each of the past three years but has failed to win a game.
