John Lynch (49ers): “Brock Purdy is the leader”

If Trey Lance finds the smile, for the moment, he does not find the position of holder. Wednesday, John Lynch (GM, 49ers) recalled on SiriusXM NFL Radio that it is Brock Purdy who has this title for the moment.

“Brock is the leader in the group, we said that, but it’s an open competition. »

To remain the leader, Purdy must play again. And that too is progressing for the player injured in the elbow in the playoffs.

“He did a throwing session and we were incredibly encouraged because we saw. He achieves all the objectives and we are not surprised, because he does the necessary work. We’ll take things as they come. We hope he is ready for training camp and the regular season. »

injuries

– Victim of a calf strain a little over a week ago, Aaron Rodgers (QB, Jets) is still not at full strength. On Wednesday, Robert Saleh explained to the press that his new quarterback is on the mend, and that he hopes to see him fully for training on Friday.

– Robert Saleh said he was optimistic about his chances for Breece Hall (RB, Jets) to be in gear for Week 1 next September. ” I don’t want to jinx him, knock on wood, but he’s already running at 35 km/h on the GPS. He looks great“, assured the coach. Victim of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 7, the 22-year-old is also positive: ” I feel like myself again. (NFL.com)

– Victim of a bicep tear that ended his season in Week 3, Rashawn Slater (OT, Chargers) is once again ready to protect Justin Herbert. ” I’d say I’m 100% for a while now. So now, you just have to accumulate the repetitions to gain confidence“, he explained to ESPN.

Transactions

– The Jets have restructured the contract of their safety Jordan Whitehead. The New York franchise converted $4 million of its base salary into a signing bonus. This restructuring will create $5.3 million in payroll.

The main signings of the day: Elliot Fry (K, Broncos), Jesse James (TE, Saints), Jordan Swann (CB, Ravens), Jake Bargas (FB, Saints), Tommy Hudson (TE, Broncos)

The main cups of the day: Tyreik McAllister (RB, Broncos), Alex Quevedo (K, Saints), Jacques Patrick (RB, Broncos)

In short

– Raheem Morris (DC, Rams) helped rescue a child who had just drowned in a swimming pool in Las Vegas. His wife shared on Instagram that the Rams defensive coordinator was at a hotel pool with his family when a man pulled his son out of the water. The latter had no pulse when a rescuer began CPR. Morris then ran in search of a defibrillator, which he found. He then opened the kit and placed the electrodes on the victim. The child regained consciousness before being taken to hospital, from which he was discharged the following day. Morris told ESPN that he thinks recent first aid training with the Rams helped him to be clear-headed and find the right solutions.

–Texans players and their coaches wore orange t-shirts to practice Wednesday. The aim was to draw attention to the fight against gun violence. Orange will be the color of the weekend on the subject. ” We want to use our voice as a franchise and as a team to end it“, DeMeco Ryans explained to the press about the various killings that have taken place in the United States in recent weeks. The t-shirt notably bore the inscription “Uvalde”, in memory of the elementary school of this city, marked by a massacre which claimed the lives of 19 children and 2 teachers.

Aaron Rodgers gave an ultimatum

2021 has been a very eventful offseason for Green Bay. For good reason, Aaron Rodgers asked to be traded. But, this request was part of an ultimatum. Indeed, the alternative was to fire general manager Brian Gutekunst.

According to The Athletic, it was Rodgers agent David Dunn who made the request to President Mark Murphy.

Harry Kane would like to play in the NFL

Tottenham footballer Harry Kane would like to be a big league kicker one day. He reportedly reiterated that to Michael Strahan on the show Good Morning America.

“It’s something I would definitely like to do. I know there is a lot of work and a lot of training. I’m not just going to get up in the morning and start scoring field goals. The NFL is a sport I’ve watched for almost 10 years, and I’m a huge fan. So, I would like to give myself this chance. »
