Question: As an tight-end, you are the only member of the offensive line who receives credit for the successful plays and you are more heavily criticized when you make a noticeable mistake. What is your favorite job as a member of the offensive line, more specifically as a tight end? Are you more of a receiver or blocking type?
Laye: The great aspects of tight end are that you get the ability to block and catch the ball. The pressure that comes with tight end is not only how you play but knowing all the plays. You have to know pass routes as well as blocking schemes. My favorite job is getting to run routes as well as seal the edge on run plays. I play both parts of tight end equally.
