NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre says he made three trips to rehab centers for his dependence on painkillers and alcohol during his career.
I’m paid to play quarterback, so I don’t make those decisions, Rodgers said Tuesday after the Packers’ first OTA practice that was open to the media.
It needs to be his system, his structure. But I would classify him as still very actively involved and just checking everything and being on top of what’s available.”
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.
“When you’ve got a guy that has played in (the defense) that long, and really started in that system, and has kind of excelled in it as well as anyone, it’s nice to have,” 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.
