Sheldon Richardson’s Confidence is High:

Sheldon Richardson is heading into his sophomore year and his confidence is sky high.

According to Star Ledger writer Darryl Slater,

Richardson on a Sophomore Slump?

“That sounds like a rookie wall, something I never hit,” he said. “It sounds a lot like it to me.”

“For me, I like to just stick with it, because when I stop, I’m kind of a guy who really shuts down everything, so I just keep going,” he said. “I’m going to get away from football, but as far as working out, nah, I’m going to stick with it.”

“The playbook, you don’t need the coaches, really,” Richardson said. “You can teach yourself, pick up little things you notice and probably something the coach might’ve overlooked. But knowing Dundee, he’s probably caught it all.”

Jace Amaro’s Growth and Progress:

According to Star Ledger writer Darryl Slater,

“Since whenever that first time I came out and didn’t have a very good day, I feel like I’ve taken some really big strides since then,” he said. “That was the first week of OTAs, and that was one of the more heavy playbook days. It was just one of those things where I knew I’m not going to be perfect out here and I’m going to make mistakes. That’s what this period of practice is for, is to get ready for training camp and make sure you’re fundamentally sound on all the playbook stuff. Right now, I feel really good about it.”

“I just know the whole playbook now, and I know exactly what I need to do on every single play. It’s just a lot more relaxing out there. I can read the defense and I can see who I expect is going to guard me on a certain play. I feel a lot better about it. That’s probably the biggest thing. I know what I can do (physically) and what my game is. That’s all going to come along. The mental part about it and the playbook part about it is the biggest thing.”
