Gresham: I hate to lose

Bengals tight ends coach Jon Hayes was right.

Jermaine Gresham is a big man. The 6-5, 265-pounder towered over head coach Marvin Lewis for the obligatory jersey photo at Thursday’s news conference at Paul Brown Stadium.

As he sat down at the news conference table, someone said, “The center of attention.” He said, “No, I’m just a piece of it.”

After a meet and greet with a VIP draft party of team sponsors and suite holders, a relaxed Gresham met the media in a dress shirt, powder blue tie, and a Bengals baseball cap.

“I hate to lose,” he said.

Asked if he’s talked to quarterback Carson Palmer yet, Gresham said he hadn’t but he could know why Palmer will like him.

“Easy to find. Big target,” he said. “A catching machine.”
