Carolina Panthers defensive end Mario Addison made a name for himself in Week 1, tallying two sacks, which is tied for No. 2 in the NFL. One of the six players he's tied with? Houston Texans' J.J. Watt.
While Addison impressed coaches with his pass-rushing ability, he impressed his teammates with his speed just as much, according to Tom Sorensen of The News & Observer.
"How fast is Mario Addison?" asks Carolina defensive tackle Colin Cole, repeating a question from The News & Observer. "Fast enough to cut on a dime and leave change."
As for defensive end Kony Ealy, well, he chimed in on Addison's speed as well, saying that "he's fast enough to make fast people look slow."
Pretty big statements from Addison's teammates, and you can bet that the defensive end will look to add to his sack total in Week 2 against the Texans.
