"I actually don’t think he’s that good," Lane said. "He’s OK. But he does have a big body, and from what I’ve seen on tape, he don’t like your hands being put on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won’t catch that many balls as he should."

Lane, who was on the short-term injured reserve with a groin injury during the season, played in just seven games during the regular season. He served as the team's nickelback in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers, playing 55 of the team's 73 defensive snaps.
