- The Athletic’s Adam Jahns says the Bears coaches have hinted they want to move OLB Robert Quinn into more of a situational pass-rushing role in 2021 after he struggled to be productive in 2020. To do that, however, they need to be able to lean more on veteran Jeremiah Attaochu and 2020 fifth-rounder Trevis Gipson.
- If Bears second-round OT Teven Jenkins can lock up the left tackle job, Jahns projects the starting line from left to right to be Jenkins, G Cody Whitehair, C Sam Mustipher, G James Daniels and RT Germain Ifedi.
- Free-agent signing Elijah Wilkinson would be the backup swing tackle for either side in that scenario, per Jahns.
Lions fourth-round rookie WR Amon-Ra St. Brown recently told Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports that he can’t wait to play with QB Jared Goff. St. Brown added that Goff has taught him some things from his time with Rams WR Cooper Kupp.
“I love Jared. He’s awesome, awesome dude,” St. Brown said via RamsWire. “Great quarterback who understands the game. He’s taught me some things about certain routes and things Cooper Kupp did with him back with the Rams that he loved. He checks in on me. He’s actually out here in Los Angeles now, so we’ll try to link up and catch some balls.”
“He’s a great quarterback who knows the game. I can’t wait to play with him.”
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he has focused on his mental health this offseason.
“I’m very thankful for the opportunity to work on my mental health,” Rodgers said, via ESPN’s Ben Baby. “I haven’t dealt with bouts of depression or anything, that I think for whatever reason, are OK to talk about if you’re talking about mental health. I’ve just really been trying to think about what puts me in the best frame of mind. What habits can I form that allow me to feel most in my body, most present, happiest? And that’s what I’ve been doing.”
