Cardinals’ supplemental fifth-round S Jalen Thompson is confident he will be able to compete after recently signing with Arizona.
“I know I can compete with these guys, hang with them at a high level,” Thompson, via Darren Urban of the team’s official site. “But for the most part, it’s getting the plays down and once I see it on the field and get through a couple of walkthroughs, I’m going to be fine. I know I will.”
Regarding the NCAA ruling him ineligible after reportedly taking an unapproved over-the-counter supplement, Thompson said he is happy to begin his NFL career.
“The whole Washington State thing, that happened, but now everything is speeding up and I’m happy to be here, happy to be around the guys and for the most part, I’m just ready to start working,” said Thompson. “I was tired of all the training. It was time to work.”
Rams HC Sean McVay said during an appearance on the “Jimmy Kimmel Show” that RB Todd Gurley (knee) is “feeling great” and is “ready to go.”
“I think he’s feeling great,” McVay said, via NFL.com. “I think, you know, one of the things about Todd is (he’s a) great competitor. I think he’s earned the right to be able to have the plan that we had this offseason. Can’t wait to get him back going. I know he’s ready to go and it’s going to be fun for the Rams this year.”
