- Bill Zimmerman of WindyCityGridiron.com, citing a source close to the situation, reports that Bears DT Eddie Goldman will report to training camp on time and is not considering holding out this offseason.
Lions GM Brad Holmes believes QB Jared Goff can be an answer at the quarterback position for the team.
“I never viewed him as a bridge option,” Holmes said, via Lions.com. “He’s been a winning quarterback. I think his resume speaks for itself.”
Holmes added even though the bulk of the offseason is over, there is always work to be done.
“I’ve said it all the time, and I’ll probably always say this: It’s not enough,” Holmes said. “I’m just used to saying that. There’s still a lot left to do. I don’t think there’s a point in this league when it’s ever truly enough. You can always add more depth, especially with the way the game keeps changing.”
“Honestly, it’s not even something that we truly talk about like that. It’s just, everybody’s been dialed into what they got to do. There’s enough to worry about with themselves than to be going and worrying about what other guys are doing and what their situation is like, especially when we can’t control any of that,” Adams said, via Paulina Dedaj of Fox News. “I think everybody’s mindset, everybody is going to love Aaron the same way when he returns, and obviously it’s been a little bit of a confusing situation but there hasn’t been any negative talk or anything like that. Everybody’s behind him.”
Adams added that he is still hopeful that Rodgers will return but will continue working to improve regardless of the matter.
“I’ll be there and I’ll be ready to rock. Hopefully, Aaron will be there as well and if he’s not, we’re gonna get going,” Adams said. “Like I said in the press recently, I back him and I support him whatever he does. It’s just kind of how we get down. We’ve always had each other’s backs since I first got here. Like I said, praying that he comes back, but if not I’ll be there and I’ll be working.”
Regarding Packers QB Jordan Love, Adams said he’s witnessed “some progress” from the second-year quarterback and the team will continue to evaluate him when they get into “live-action” reps.
“Well, it’s really, really early,” Adams said. “We’ve seen some progress, but obviously, when you get into live-action and do a little more training camp stuff, you’ll be able to further evaluate that, but I like what I see from him so far. He’s shown that he’s locked in and ready to assume whatever role that he has to and go out there and play, so I’m looking forward to seeing him.”
