Misquote?

Loved this story. Vonnie Holliday was quoted by an SI reporter as saying

"With the ninth pick they took a guy who is basically a kick returner -- a hurt kick returner. Here were are in June, and he hasn't been in camp yet. Maybe he'll come in eventually and become a better route-runner and make some plays. But I couldn't believe it then, and I can't believe it now."

And now he says "it was taken out of context." What context?

"He turned it into me bashing the organization. I'm not criticizing the organization and Ginn. That's not what I did. It was my initial shock of the selection. I'm a player. I have no idea about Ginn. There were quarterback concerns and Brady Quinn is just sitting there and I think we're picking him with the ninth pick and we don't. Our scouts saw that wasn't the right route."
