"I just kept my faith", Fitzpatrick said to ESPN in reference to Hurricane Irene, which struck his home in Old Bridge in 2011. "He does a lot of things really well".

I think he's a perennial Pro Bowler-type of guy, and I think he'll be a first-class professional as far as the way he carries himself, and I'm looking forward to watching him develop at the next level". "They kind of allowed me to move around and be a chess piece as you say, or a Swiss Army knife as you say". He also racked up five sacks, nine interceptions, and 24 passes defended.
