Brian Orakpo to me on getting tagged by the Redskins: "I'm excited to continue to play football. I'm glad we've made the first step, but hopefully we can still get things done in the long run.
I don't have a problem with the decision (the Washington Redskins) made, but I still want a long-term deal. This is new to me. I'm just letting this play out to the end. I'm excited to be with the Redskins as of right now, but now we will go from here. It's always good to try and finish up with the team that drafted you. However, it is a business and I understand the business. If it works out then it works out. At the very least I'm happy they took this step forward."
On whether he should be tagged as a LB or DE?
"I can't really comment on that right now."
