Odeyingbo also discussed growing up in Nigeria, his relationship with fellow rookie defensive end Kwity Paye and his appreciation for the “Hurricane Dayo” nickname that is quickly spreading across the fanbase.
“I’m just hoping to live up to my name and help the team so if that’s what the fanbase wants it to be, that’s what it is.” – on the Hurricane Dayo nickname
