We’re only a few days into rookie minicamp, but it sounds like Jared Goff might be setting himself up for the Rams‘ starting job already.
“He’s doing a great job picking up our offense,” coach Jeff Fisher told the team’s website. “We’ve given him a lot more information than we did at the private workout and then that we did here at our meeting, and he’s handled it without any problem. And that’s the impressive thing…I passed him last night walking to the room and he was leaving the meeting room at 10 o’clock. He’s that kind of guy. He’ll spend the time. It’s important to him.”
Here’s more from the NFC:
- With Greg Hardy and Jeremy Mincey no longer in the mix at defensive end in Dallas, the Cowboys will be counting on unsung pass-rushers to get after opposing quarterbacks during the 2016 season, as Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram details.
- After their former punter, Brad Nortman, headed to Jacksonville in free agency, the Panthers will head into camp with Swayze Waters and Michael Palardy competing for the 2016 job. However, as Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer observes, there should be veteran options out there if Carolina wants to go in that direction. Former San Diego punter Mike Scifres is already a free agent, while Denver’s Britton Colquitt is a release candidate.
- The Eagles are set to hire Joe Douglas as their personnel chief. Douglas, who joined the Bears approximately a year ago, spent the previous 15 years with the Ravens, serving as Baltimore’s national scout from 2012 to 2015.
