Rams WRs coach mic'd up at OTAs: 'Ball security is job security'
Organized team activities aren’t a time for heated position battles or fighting for starting jobs. That’s not to say players can’t impress coaches and improve their stock heading into minicamp and eventually training camp, but it’s more about conditioning and toying with concepts on the field.
Coaches remain intense and fiery during OTAs, as displayed by linebackers coach Joe Barry last week. This week, it was wide receivers coach Eric Yarber who was mic’d up during practice.
He can be heard coaching up players about ball security, focusing their eyes on the football and route discipline.
Yarber is an intense coach, but not unlike any others across the NFL. He also clearly likes to have fun with his players. He likes the Rams’ group of receivers and could be heard saying this about them.
“I got a great crew, man. They’re awesome. They’re good players, good workers and smart. Awesome,” he said.
