Throughout the offseason, members of the Patriots have reflected on leadership and Koppen said maybe it is time for him to also be more vocal this fall.
"I think [leadership] is good but it could be better," Koppen said. "I think everybody needs to do their part. Really that starts with just doing your job and coming in and working out hard everyday. People like myself, that haven't been as vocal in the past, maybe I need to step up and be a little more vocal. We've got a few other guys that are ready to take those roles and I think we'll see that develop in the offseason."
