San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman isn’t yet capable of taking part in practices with his new teammates in Santa Clara. However http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-nick-leddy-jersey , that hasn’t stopped him from making his presence known in other ways.
According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, Sherman was serving as essentially another member of the 49ers coaching staff in the team’s OTAs on Tuesday.
Sherman, who was well known for his active role in coaching up younger teammates with the Seattle Seahawks, has taken on the same mindset with his new teammates on the 49ers.
鈥淲hen you鈥檝e got a guy that has played in (the defense) that long, and really started in that system TJ Brodie Jersey , and has kind of excelled in it as well as anyone, it鈥檚 nice to have,鈥?Shanahan said.
As Shanahan mentioned, San Francisco defensive coordinator Robert Saleh was an assistant defensive coach in Seattle when Sherman was drafted in 2011. They spent three years together in Seattle before Saleh moved on to join Gus Bradley’s staff in Jacksonville. With the 49ers running a very similar scheme to the one Sherman excelled in with the Seahawks, he’s more than qualified to dispense advice to his new colleagues.
鈥淗e鈥檚 very active Authentic David Perron Jersey , he鈥檚 very hands-on and he wants to see my game go to the next level,” cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon said.
Sherman is still recovering from a torn Achilles sustained last November, which is keeping him from taking part in offseason work. He had a secondary surgery to clean up bone spurs in his other ankle but that was a minor procedure.
For the second straight year, the Steelers have exercised their prerogative to apply the franchise tag to running back Le'Veon Bell. For the second straight year, Bell has exercised his prerogative to not sign the franchise tag.
So when will Bell sign his one-year Luke Glendening Jersey , $14.54 million tender? He should consider signing it before the 90-to-53 roster cuts are made on Saturday.
Article 20, Section 4 permits the Steelers to place Bell on roster-exempt status for up to two weeks of the regular season. Section 4(a) specifically requires the Steelers and Bell to agree in writing as to what his compensation will be while on roster-exempt status.
This gives the Steelers license to play hardball with Bell, if they choose to do so. Really, why pay him more than $855,000 per week if he’s not going to play for the first two games http://www.officialstarsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-brett-ritchie-jersey , against the Browns and the Chiefs? And the Steelers may be inclined to not let him play the first two weeks of the season, given that it took him a few weeks last year to get up to speed.
Bell can avoid this potential wrinkle by simply signing his tender before the rosters are cut. And the Steelers can avoid that wrinkle and several others by rescinding the tender entirely, something that the Steelers continue to have the right to do until he signs it.
