49ers’ DE Nick Bosa says that he is entering training camp in the best shape of his life and T Trent Williams knows that his competitions against Bosa will be a measuring tool for his return to action.
“He is a pivotal tool for me to use to knock the rust off,” Williams said, via Matt Barrows of The Athletic. “I think he’s one of the top four or five rushers in the game. We can kind of bounce ideas off each other, talk each other through it. I think it’s gonna work out in the best case for me, and I hope he gains just as much as I do from it.”
Rams WR Robert Woods says that their receivers group is among the best in the league and also mentioned that he would like to stay with Los Angeles for the long haul.
“We’re not like the flashiest group of receivers, but we’re just up there with production, up there with the best if not the best, as a group and as a unit,” Woods said, via Eric D. Williams of Sports Illustrated. “You want to go in and get paid for what you’re worth. I think everyone feels that way. I’ve been working here for the Rams and want to be here for the rest of my career, keep playing here in L.A., home stadium. I want to get the job done and be here long-term.”
Cooper Kupp is also planning on staying with the Rams long term as he enters the final year of his rookie contract, but notes he hasn’t had any conversations with the team about his current situation.
“I’m obviously incredibly grateful to be here and to be able to play for a great organization,” Kupp said, via Lindsey Thiry of ESPN. “I love it here, I don’t want to go anywhere. But in terms of all the contract stuff, I’m really letting all that stuff be handled by my agent and staying out of it.”
“Everybody knows who the starting running back is for Seattle and that’s Carson,” Hyde said, via Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic. “He’s been putting up 1,000 yards like it’s nothing each year, so it’s definitely tough coming in trying to replace a guy like that. I’m definitely open to the competition. It’s not my first year in the league. I’m going on Year 7, so I’m used to competing. It brings out the best in me, so I’m looking forward to it.”
