Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy said he is focusing on making the catch before starting his run this offseason.
“Mostly concentration and focusing on the ball. I’m so quick to catch and run to hurry up and make a play instead of catching first, then run,” Jeudy said, via Mike Klis of 9News. “That’s mostly what is. Just trying to make a play too fast and not focusing on the bigger picture which is catching the ball first.”
“Because both of the guys have a different type of spiral and air to the ball,” Jeudy said. “Drew has more of a hard drill and Teddy is more of a floater. You just have to adjust to the certain way they throw the ball. You have to focus on each person and catching the ball when it comes out of their hands.”
Broncos HC Vic Fangio mentioned that Jeudy is in a “far better place” this offseason than as a rookie in 2020.
“I think he’s in a far better place than he was last year at this time,” Fangio said. “I think a big thing that happened with Jerry—like I told you guys back when it happened—in the 15th game last year when he had some drops in that game, I thought it was going to be a defining moment in his career and how he played the following week.”
Chargers LB Kenneth Murray feels he is “100 percent” recovered from shoulder surgery but is still being “extremely cautious” with his return.
“I’ve talked to the trainers here and I feel pretty strong. To be honest, if you asked me to play a game right now, I feel like I could play a game right now,” Murray said, the team’s official Periscope. “But since we have so much time, they just want to take things extremely slow, [be] extremely cautious. But as far as my rehab goes, I feel 100 percent. I got all my range of motion back. I’m pretty much lifting how I want to lift now, being able to go out there and attack the weight like I want to attack the weight. So, I think I’m in a pretty good position right now.”

- Per the Athletic’s Vic Tafur, a few Raiders rookies were singled out by their new teammates as standing out during OTAs so far. Raiders TE Darren Waller said second-round S Tre’von Moehrig doesn’t look out of place: “He doesn’t really get too flustered or all over the place or out of control. He seems very dialed in and on top of what he’s doing.”
- Raiders CB Trayvon Mullen highlighted fifth-round CB Nate Hobbs: “I feel like he’s going to be really talented. He practices hard, he goes through his drills really well. I like the way he approaches practice. I feel like he’s going to be a real good player for us as long as he just keeps his mentality up and keeps going hard every day.”
- While he added the caveat that it’s hard to judge before the pads come on, Raiders DL Clelin Ferrell says undrafted rookie DT Darius Stills has “a lot of twitch.”
