49ers CB Jason Verrett mentioned that he will be ready for training camp after recovering from a torn Achilles.
“I’m going to be ready,” Verrett said, via Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports. “That’s my main focus. It’s just worrying about what I can control and I’m excited to be getting ready for training camp. My health is pretty much everything and I’m on track to be exactly where I want to be. The day I get on that football field they are going to like what they see.”
Verrett added that his rehab has “been good” and feels that he is “on track” to be ready for camp next month.
“It’s been good,” Verrett said. “Training staff and strength coaches are all doing well. I feel like I’m on track to be ready for training camp and the rest of the season.”
During his time at Texas Tech, Cardinals HC Kliff Kingsbury said that he used fake social media accounts to monitor his players.
“We have fake accounts with cute girls that they add right now so we can see what’s going on, who’s tweeting what,” Kingsbury said, via Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic. “Those are heavily monitored, for sure.”
The Seahawks have made the decision to move Shaquem Griffin back to pass rusher this season and he says it has made him more comfortable.
“It made me feel comfortable,” Griffin said, via Pro Football Talk. “Being back on the edge is just something I knew already. Just jumping back into it, running around, going fast and enjoying the moments that I have on the edge.
“It just snapped right back to me like, ‘Ooh, I’m having so much fun again.’ This is just such a big difference because I feel so comfortable out there. Put me on the edge, I can utilize my speed so much more.”
