things Ramsey had to

Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett is “happy” with where he is heading into 2017. He’s also “hungry” — very hungry — after two years of injuries.

“I think it’s going to be a little bit more juice Authentic Justin Reid Jersey , just dealing with the fact that I lost two seasons,” Verrett told Hayley Elwood of the team website. “I’m hungry. I’m going to grind. I’m going to grind, grind, grind. They’re going to see the Pro Bowl player they saw in 2015.”

The former first-round pick made the Pro Bowl his second season as one of the best cornerbacks in the league that season. But Verrett played only 11 games combined the other three seasons.

He partially tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in a Week 4 game in 2016 and needed more surgery on the same knee last season. Verrett made it through only 63 snaps in the season opener last year.

“Going into last season, in training camp, it was tough for me,” Verrett said. “I was hoping for a breakthrough. I was hoping for the scar tissue to break up. Unfortunately, it didn’t. Coming in Week 1, I knew mentally I wasn’t ready. I knew physically I wasn’t ready. I just was trying to go out there with the competitive mind set that I have.

“I felt the surgery was needed. It was tough having to get another surgery and dealing with all of that, but it was needed.”

The Chargers return last year’s starters John Hayden Jersey , Trevor Williams and Casey Hayward, along with slot corner Desmond King. They also have Michael Davis, Craig Mager and Jeff Richards, all of whom were either on the active roster or the practice squad last season.

Verrett, though, will start if he’s healthy.

“We can be real special,” Verrett said. “I know it’s a tough for the coaches to make a decision on who’s going to go out there, just because of how deep we are. But I think just how tight we are as a group, it’s going to allow us to keep feeding off each other. Everyone’s going be wanting to get better each and every day because you know the guys behind you are going to want to be where you are.”

Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey provided GQ with some candid commentary regarding many of the quarterbacks currently in the league. He also addressed one who currently isn’t.

Does Ramsey think Colin Kaepernick should be in the league?

“Oh, hell yeah Authentic Kody Clark Jersey ,” Ramsey said. “He’s way better than some of these second-string quarterbacks out here. Possibly better than some of these first-string quarterbacks out here. And some teams have third-string quarterbacks. He’s definitely good enough to be in the league, but he won’t be.”

Of all the things Ramsey had to say, that’s arguably the least controversial; regardless of how anyone feels about Kaepernick, it seems to have become a given that he’s not in the NFL for reasons unrelated to skill. The only question is whether it’s legitimate or not legitimate to shun someone who is perceived to be “bad for business.”

And Ramsey thinks it will definitely be awkward for business if someone were to sign Kaepernick now.

“I think it’s like a pride thing now,” Ramsey said. “It’s kind of like, if all of a sudden we pick him up now, people might be like, ‘So why didn’t we pick him up last year? Now we gonna pick him because he has the opportunity to stay in the locker room?’ It’ll reflect bad on teams if they pick him up now. So I don’t think he’ll get picked up.”

Ramsey is right; no matter what happens with Kaepernick’s collusion grievance, Kaepernick most likely won’t be back in the NFL. Regardless of whether he’s better than most if not all of the quarterbacks Ramsey candidly trashed to GQ.
