Cardinals HC Bruce Arians believes free agent QB Colin Kaepernick “can play in the right system.”
“He can play in the right system,” Arians said during an interview with Pro Football Talk. “He’s proven that. When he was with [former 49ers offensive coordinator] Greg Roman, that system fit him perfectly. He’s a read-option, athletic guy. He can throw it down the field with the play-action passes. He struggled against us in the past out of the pocket. It’s just finding the right fit.”
- Brian Costello of the New York Post writes that TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins was the “star” of spring workouts and should be a “big part” of the team’s offensive attack this year.
- Costello adds that the makeup of the Jets roster actually helps Seferian-Jenkins, given that their receivers are young and inexperienced.
- Seferian-Jenkins will miss the first two games of the season due to a suspension that stems from a 2016 arrest.
Texans first-round QB DeShaun Watson tells Alex Flanagan of NFL Network that he’ll be ready to go whenever the coaching staff feels it’s his time to play.
“Honestly, whenever Coach (Bill O’Brien) and the coaches feel like I’m ready to go (I’ll be ready),” Watson said. “The team feels like they can operate with me behind the wheel and being the quarterback. It’s gonna take time, it’s gonna be a process, really no rush. Just kinda taking it one day at a time, and whenever that time comes, I’ll be ready.“
