Anthony Richardson Receiving Massive Praise From Offensive Line

Wednesday, July 10, 6:47 PM

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson has received massive praise from his four-time All-Pro guard, Quenton Nelson. According to Kevin Patra of NFL.com, the Notre Dame product described his quarterback as an "absolute freak." "He can launch the ball and be accurate with it, too. The plays that he can make, some of the ones you've seen, the flashes of it. It's like, oh my goodness, this guy is special," Nelson added. The 22-year-old quarterback showed those flashes in the limited four-game stint he had in his rookie season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. This is great praise from a proven veteran who has played with other highly regarded prospects such as Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz. Richardson threw for 577 yards with three passing scores and added 136 yards on the ground with four rushing scores. The former number three overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft will be one of the first quarterbacks taken off the board in most leagues this summer, as he possesses elite passing and rushing upside.

Gardner Minshew, Aidan O'Connell Expected To Split Reps In Training Camp

Wednesday, July 10, 1:20 PM

Las Vegas Raiders quarterbacks Gardner Minshew and Aidan O'Connell split snaps with the starters during offseason team activities and will continue to do so when training camp begins later this month. Both signal-callers got off to rough starts during OTAs and struggled with accuracy, turned the ball over too much and failed to consistently push the ball down the field. They are both learning offensive coordinator Luke Getsy's scheme, but they both still have a ways to go. The front office and coaching staff are confident that Minshew or O'Connell will separate themselves in training camp and the preseason. It will depend on performance, but it wouldn't be a surprise if both Minshew and O'Connell take the field at some point in 2024. Minshew is probably the favorite given his experience and ability to make plays with his legs.
