“You attempt not to. You can’t truly escape it.  It’s all over, you hear it a lot. For me it’s simply attempting to keep away from it. It’s going to take place when it occurs.

Obviously, I enjoy being here. I enjoy this group and this group of men. Just take it one action at a time. For sure it’s in the back of my mind.”

Caufield was asked what is more secret, the term or the cash.

“Honestly, it’s, I don’t really see it like that. It’s probably just the best fit for me. My agents and the guys behind the scenes kind of take care of those things. I’m not too worried about the logistics.”

When asked if he’s one of those men who wishes to wait up until the season is over or at any time. (Interview was prior to it was revealed his season was over due to a shoulder injury)

“It’s going to happen when it happens. There’s really no rush to get there. Again, it will happen when it happens.”
