Here's Gruden's full quote:
"I like Lloyd," Gruden said. "Lloyd did some good things, man. He's a physical corner. He did some good things off. He can mix it up. We had him as a free agent already on our team so he just verified the spot to get an opportunity in training camp. So, we're happy to have him."

Having been passed on in the draft, Bercovici is putting a tireless work ethic on display for coaches to see, according to this article posted on the team site.

Every single day it's been getting better and better just because I'm starting to learn it and when I'm with the veterans, I can start to piece things together as I'm learning along."
