Notre Dame Football players give insight to NFL decisions

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- On both sides of the ball Notre Dame has several players nearing one of the biggest decisions of their lives.

For a couple, that decision has already been made.

"I'll be coming back for a fifth year,” said Drue Tranquill.

Irish Captain Drue Tranquill announced at the annual echoes awards show that he would return to lead the defensive unit and said he can't wait for another shot at a national title.

"I think it started after the Miami game, just on the buses realizing we probably weren't going to make the College Football Playoff anymore, and realizing everything we had put into this thing. I felt in my heart like I owed it to this team to come back and finish what we started,” said Tranquill.

In addition to Tranquill, Tight End Nic Weishar also said he would return for a fifth year.

But for others, patience has been the key.

Defensive standouts Te'von Coney and Jerry Tillery have yet to announce their intentions.

And one-time Heisman candidate, Josh Adams, said he would also weigh his options following the bowl game.

"It's something I'll have to think about but I'm just excited to continue to be here and I'm just trying to live in the moment, enjoy being around my teammates, having fun with those guys," said Adams.
