SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- This will be Colin Kaepernick's second full season as an NFL starting quarterback. He is showing the leadership of a quarterback in charge of his offense.
Tuesday, Brandon Lloyd told reporters Kaepernick will watch film with the receivers and point out target spots and express his thoughts on specific players. Kaepernick said it is part of the growing process at his position.
"I think the coaches have a lot more confidence in me doing that," Kaepernick said.
There are a few things in life worth paying for: shoes, pillows and haircuts.
In football, a young, talented, charismatic lockdown cornerback might just be atop that list. The Arizona Cardinals showed Patrick Peterson how much they thought he was worth Tuesday night. Peterson tweeted that he and the Cardinals had agreed on a five-year contract extension worth $70 million that includes $48 million guaranteed.
Apparently, the future costs a lot.
In Peterson, the Cardinals have the player they can build a franchise around for the foreseeable future.
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A daily review of the hot topics coming out of Arizona Cardinals training camp:
• He’s been one of the talks of camp, but Michael Floyd put his offseason improvement on display Tuesday. On one pass, Floyd got a step behind cornerback Patrick Peterson for a touchdown that sailed in just beyond Peterson’s reach. Floyd then hauled in another score over cornerback Justin Bethel. Earlier Tuesday, quarterback Carson Palmer praised Floyd’s size and his ability to overpower cornerbacks, which was the case Tuesday.
