Jason Verrett is not able to get on the field during OTAs. He is watching on the sideline and trying to soak in all the information from the coaches and by watching his teammates run around.

When OTAs are over, Eric Weddle is going to get together with the youngster in order to get him up to speed.

“The biggest thing for him is don’t rush it back,” safety Eric Weddle said via UT San Diego. “We’ve seen too many guys come back early from injuries to try to prove what they are to the team and all this stuff. We just want him healthy, whether it’s the end of OTAs or by training camp. We’ll get together in June and July because I’ll be in town and he will. It’ll be good for him to work with me and get him up to speed as much as possible so he can come out and try to make an impact for us.”

“He’s a talented kid. Great, great mindset. He’s lightyears mentally ready for this moment and for what the NFL brings mentally. That’s exciting for an older guy to know his head is in the right place.”

Weddle is the perfect leader for this defense. He cares about winning and he cares about making the younger players on the team better. He is going to get together with the youngster in order to share all the information that he has soaked up in his time in the league.

Verrett has a ton of potential. He can learn a ton from a player like Weddle during this offseason and can put himself in the path for success.

I love that Weddle is going to get together with the youngster. The future is bright.
