"Jacob improved a lot last year and he's gotten off to a good start this year from the offseason program to our spring workouts to the start of training camp. He's still got a long way to go. He has a lot of football in front of him. He didn't have a lot of experience - had some - but has gained a lot and will gain a lot more," Belichick said. "I think he's got a great future. He works hard, he's a tough kid, he plays hard, practices hard and has become much better at his fundamentals and techniques at his position."
"It's awesome getting some one-on-one time with James and Tom, being able to learn from guys like that. Any opportunity to get extra work, whether it's getting one-on-one time with Tom or learning from those older guys is a great opportunity," Hollister said. "Obviously you want to get as many reps as you can with the starting quarterback, but at the same time I'm trying to get as much reps as I can, whether it's with him, Hoy (Brian Hoyer) or Danny (Etling)."
"I'm just trying to do whatever they want me to do. Whether that's all special teams, blocking, catching the ball, I'm trying to do whatever the team needs me to do," he said. "I'm just coming out trying to learn like I did last year. It's a fresh start every year. I'm trying to relearn the offense, learn from the older guys and do my best."
