”As an NFL player, you’ve got to prepare subtly different if you’re the guy as the starter compared to if you’re the backup. He’s been in both roles, so I think that means a lot,” Barry said.
Wilson’s ability to adjust was evident during OTAs. With Barron sitting out because of injuries Quenton Nelson Jersey , Wilson was paired with Littleton as part of the first-team defense. The two quickly meshed, and the partnership seems to have only grown as Wilson and Littleton continued to work together early in training camp, with Barron being worked back in cautiously.
Barry could not take credit for the chemistry Wilson and Littleton have displayed.
”When two guys go out and they take over 200 snaps together in OTAs, they are going to build a rapport together. It just happens naturally,” Barry said.
Despite the inexperience of the group, Wilson likes how they are progressing. How the linebackers perform might determine whether the play of the Rams defense matches the hysteria created by signing defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and trading for cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Marcus Peter in the offseason, and Wilson has not seen anything to indicate the inside linebackers are not ready for the challenge.
”They are right along and they are ready to go M.J. Stewart Buccaneers Jersey , the whole room,” Wilson said. ”We’ve got a lot of expectations, but we know we’ve got the talent. We’re just putting in the work each day now and taking it one day at a time. That’s all we are going to do, and the results will show at the end of the day.”
NOTES: Rams head coach Sean McVay said Saturday there was no update regarding All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald’s holdout, but they have been in contact via telephone. ”I spoke with him in the last day or so, and we’re just checking in, seeing how he’s doing John Ross Youth Jersey ,” McVay said.
