S ERIC BERRY, DALLAS COWBOYS

Injuries have kept him from being the Eric Berry we all know and love, but he’s too talented when healthy to remain unsigned. In 2016, Berry earned an 89.9 overall grade across 1,151 defensive snaps in Kansas City.

The Cowboys have been rumored to be in the mix for a number of safeties throughout the offseason, and they eventually brought in George Iloka to compete for a roster spot. Berry would be an immediate upgrade at the position, and he would provide an influx of veteran leadership among a defensive back unit filled with youthful playmakers.

Jimmy Garoppolo mum on advice Tom Brady gave him about ACL rehab | Yahoo! Sports

The 49ers quarterback currently is rehabbing from a torn ACL suffered during Week 3 last season against the Kansas City Chiefs. Brady suffered a torn ACL during the first game of the 2008 season ... against the Chiefs. You see where this is going.

On Wednesday, Jimmy G was asked about the advice Brady might have given him about coming back from a torn ACL, but the 27-year-old wasn’t about to divulgeTB12’s method.

”I’ve got to keep that confidential,” Garoppolo said, via The Mercury News. “But I did actually talk to him about it for a bit. He’s been through everything, seen everything, so whenever I can pick his brain that’s a good thing.”
