Josh Forrest is standing out amongst the linebackers, and it’s just not for his height.
The 6-foot 3 rookie has been hard at work since landing in Los Angeles, and the hard work is paying off according to the Los Angeles Times.
“He’s moved up quite a bit,” Williams said. “He wasn’t in quite a good enough condition when he first got in here. All rookies are shocked at the level of conditioning that you have to have here.”
Forrest joined a linebacker corps that features Ayers, middle linebacker Alec Ogletree and Mark Barron. This season, his biggest contributions probably will be made on special teams.
“Any backup linebacker, backup safety, really [any] safety-corner-linebacker has to be very, very good in the special teams to get time with us,” Williams said, “because we’re pretty versatile in the front line of guys that we have.”
Here’s to hoping that Forrest keeps moving up.
