The problem is the 25th overall pick of the 2014 draft can’t seem to stay on the field.After rehabbing a knee injury and working his way back http://www.raidersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-trayvon-mullen-jersey , Verrett tore his Achilles while running in a conditioning test before training camp in 2018. He missed the entire season after playing one game in 2017 and four games in 2016.“When it happened, I definitely had thoughts in my mind of retiring for sure, just because I worked so hard coming back from the devastating knee injury that I experienced, got back to full strength, was out there in OTAs and trained well to get ready for training camp and that season,” Verrett told SiriusXM NFL Radio. “Man, it was just a freak situation that happened. It definitely was devastating, hard to deal with. I was like in a dark place for a few months Maxx Crosby Jersey , just from rehabbing and sitting on the couch and stuff like that. I definitely did contemplate giving up on it.”Verrett played only 25 games for the Chargers, missing 55 with injuries. He has appeared in five games the past three seasons combined.“It’s been a tough journey,” Verrett said. “I ain’t going to lie to you. It’s been tough. There was some long nights for me. Smile now, cry later type of thing for me. But just knowing what it is that I’m capable of doing, the love I’ve got for the game, I just couldn’t give up on it. I’m just excited the 49ers gave me a chance.”Verrett, who made the Pro Bowl in 2015 with three interceptions and 12 pass breakups in 14 games, said his Achilles is “doing good.”“I like where they have me right now progressing Hakeem Butler Jersey ,” Verrett said. “I’ll for sure be ready for the season. I would probably say my turning point was around like six, seven months. I kind of started feeling the strength getting back into my calf. But it’s a day-to-day thing that’s ongoing.” Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has said his back should be fine, and hopes it won’t be an issue next year.What remains a question, however, is how he’ll handle the pressure of replacing the guy who replaced him the last two years.Nick Foles stepped in and led the team to a Super Bowl last year and to an unlikely playoff push this year, but is expected to be dealt this offseason. Wentz knows that’s a hard act to follow.“It could [add pressure]. Without a doubt,” Wentz said, via Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia. “You look at that and you could say it could put more pressure. I mean Chris Lindstrom Jersey , you can say coming into the season there was more pressure. But I do everything I can to block that stuff out. I think right now, going forward, my focus is getting my body right. And to play this game freely the way I did last year before the injury and cut it loose. Get rid of all that pressure and anxiety and whatever it may be, just play the game freely. And that’s where I’m going to get to.”Wentz was careful to avoid specific questions about the future of either quarterback, or his own contract situation, though discussion of the position will doubtless dominate Philadelphia sports radio the entire offseason.“I try not to think about all those things,” Wentz said. “I know there’s lots of he said, she said things out there http://www.atlantafalconsteamonline.com/kaleb-mcgary-jersey , . . . but at the end of the day, I can’t control those. I can’t control those. What I can control is getting my body right, getting healthy and getting myself back on the field to prove the player I can be.”And then and only then can he worry about how much of a challenge it will be to be better than his backup.
