    our newest linebacker Akin Ayodele has been gracious enough to grant us an interview with him. He is busy with getting ready for the season of course so we have limited the questions to 10. So ask your questions here and we will choose the best 10 of the group. Thanks :)

    What other teams were asking for your servises and why did you go to the cowboys..Was it becuase they offered the most money or is there something else to it?

    Do you think you're better suited for the 3-4 defense? Better suited for inside or outside LB in the 3-4 defense?

    How the hell do you pronounce your name?


    In Dallas you'll be moving inside to play in a 3-4 scheme, why are your skills right for this scheme?

    There were some rumors about some differences with Coach Del Rio. Could you expound on that, and if true, did that have anything to do with your exit from Jacksonville?

    With you replacing Dat, I think we have a chance to finish in the top 5 in defense. Does that seem realistic to you guys? Is that something you guys like to shoot for before the season starts?

    can a other male besides Freddie (from Scooby-Doo fame) wear a ascott and not be considered gay...

    Is it a fashion no-no to wear brown in spring

    why is it that the guys that model rarely see a tenth of what female models make

    Do you find it useful to pose in front of a mirror...

    I know you're still getting to know everyone, but what do you think of your new teammates? And who do you feel you have the most in common with?

    Did you know any of the guys before actually arriving in Dallas?

    And wassup w/the modeling? Has Parcells given you a nickname yet cuz of it? I had to ask... :)

    Since we are assuming you were signed to replace Dat at ILB in our D.. have you studied his style any and what are the differences in your styles.

    Are you tuff enough to play ILB in the 3-4, taking on those 300+lb guards? Are you tough enough to play for Parcells? Are you doing anything extra this offseason, strength and conditioning wise, to aid your performance as a 3-4 ILB vs. what you have done in the past as a 4-3 LB?

    What do you consider to be the greatest strengths and weaknesses in your game? On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate these individual parts of your game: reading plays, shedding blocks, run defense, man coverage, zone coverage and pass rushing?
