NFC Notes: Ramsey, 49ers, Zimmer, White

With another busy day of football news winding down, let’s take a look around the NFC:

  • The 49ers are “not in” on Jalen Ramsey, a source tells Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports. San Fran isn’t interested in trading for the cornerback because of the level of compensation that the Jaguars are requesting (two first-rounders) and the sizable extension Ramsey will expect to sign.
  • Jason Verrett, who has dealt with health issues throughout his career, has yet to make his debut for the 49ers and the cornerback hasn’t ruled out requesting a trade. Maiocco (as he relays in a separate piece) asked Verrett if he would ask for one if he continues to be inactive for games and the CB responded with “We’ll see what happens.”
  • In an interview on NFL Network, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he wants to coach until he’s 70-years-old. Zimmer turned 63 in June.
  • Buccaneers LB Devin White continues to sit out of practice, as Josh Alper of PFT relays. White injured his knee during the team’s TNF game against the Panthers last week and coach Bruce Arians insinuated that White would not be out long. Now, it’s looking like his status for Tampa Bay’s Week 3 contest is in doubt.

    So wait. He is inactive, because he isnt healthy enough to play. And HE would ask for a trade?

      It says “throughout his career”. Where do you see that he isn’t healthy enough to play, now?

        Ankle): Verrett has missed the last two games due to an ankle injury, and it is unclear if he will suit up Sunday against the Steelers. (Updated September 16, 2019)

    I’m sure Zimmer wants to work until 70 so he can get his full social security……. probably is blowing through that 4 mil per year ya think?

    No one wanted to sign yet they will trade for him? Jason needs to get healthy and get ready to contribute to a playoff team.
