“N’Keal understands that a key ingredient in the production is the opportunity. He will continue to work hard to develop and refine his craft after missing much of his debut year to injury. His expected expectations for his NFL career are not changed. We are convinced that success is just around the corner for him and will aggressively pursue it. “
