Ngata Excited About Being a Part of the Lions Defense

Baltimore Ravens v Pittsburgh Steelers

Lions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said recently he has “never been a part of a defense like this,” Carlos Monarrez of the Detroit Free Press reports.

“It’s exciting, man,” he said. “I’ve never been a part of a defense like this,” Ngata said. “You have so many athletes: J.J., Ziggy, Caraun, Darryl Tapp. You just have so many playmakers all over the front on the D-line. I’m just excited to be a part of it.”

Even though Ngata has to get used to a new team and a new defense, he’s viewing the change as a challenge.

“It all depends what you’ve been doing your whole career,” he said. “I’ve been down in Baltimore a long time and changing to this type of defense it’s just exciting. I’m excited to do it and I’m excited to be here. Just can’t wait to put the pads on to see how it really feels.”
