Former Packers WR Greg Jennings expressed regret for how he handled his departure from Green Bay.
“The way I exited Green Bay was very unprofessional,” Jennings said, via Ben Goessling of ESPN.com. “But I don’t feel any of that here. I felt more of a disrespect from Green Bay, honestly. It was more dealing with myself — it was, ‘Man, I really wanted to stay in Green Bay.’ I really wanted to stay here [in Minnesota], but I’ve grown so much in my faith, to where I recognize where God is moving and making change.
“It just was really something I was dealing with myself. I had to recognize that I had a level of pride to where I felt like, ‘Wow, I went through all of this.’ It was almost a sense of entitlement, like, ‘Wow, I dedicated my entire career, and [there’s] no fight, no want? It’s almost like you disowned your child. But that’s what I was feeling — and again, selfishly. Bottom line, I was hurt, because I did want to stay. But I wasn’t willingly embracing change at that moment. It’s unfortunate, but I’ve been very apologetic to them personally. I don’t have a lot of things where I wish it wouldn’t have happened. I definitely wish I would have handled that better.”
Rams first-round pick RB Todd Gurley said that he’s hoping to be able to participate in workouts at the start of training camp.
“I’m coming up on seven months and a couple weeks,” Gurley said, via Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. “I’m just going to keep progressing. I’ll be here in July. I hope so for training camp, I hope I at least get to go do some individual stuff. So that’s the next goal right there.”
According to Rams HC Jeff Fisher, they’ll continue to monitor Gurley’s rehab from a torn ACL this summer.
“It’s hard to say right now,” Fisher said of getting Gurley involved in training camp activities. “I can’t predict that. I know he’s doing well. He’ll rehab with us during the break. We’re also going to give him his time off because he’s entitled to his time off to go home for a few days. We’re just going to see how he progresses. We have options, which are the PUP things and we just have to see where he is. If he’s not PUP-ed then I think you could probably assume that he’s going to play sooner than you think.”
