"He's a very talented player and this is a big offseason for him," Hickey told 560 WQAM. "Last year with his shoulder he didn't have an opportunity to have a full offseason. That's so important. Developing and getting your body -- not just the physical reps but the mental reps -- getting in the weight room and all those things is such an important part to get these guys ready to make that jump. We're excited about Dion going forward and having a great offseason and looking for big things from him."
“We feel like with a full offseason, with more time devoted to his fundamentals, he will have a better grasp of the position that he’s playing,” coach Joe Philbin said. “We do want to do a better job with the numbers and rotating in.”
