San Diego Chargers DC John Pagano shared his thoughts on rookie corner Jason Verrett over the radio yesterday and he is excited:
He tackles and he comes up and he loves to hit. He doesn’t look like he plays small. He plays big. Being 5-foot9 1/2, it’s something that I guess any of the guys that are shorter players in the league are always going to have to deal with, but you see him out there, he’s a football payer. He’s quick. You saw him Monday doing those drills. You can see his feet, and you can see how he moves. It’s good to get him out there on the field and get him going. – John Pagano via Mighty 1090
Verrett has not been able to join the rest of the team to do all the drills, but he is working through individual drills at the moment. The coaching staff and other players on the roster can see his quickness and speed.
