The former first-round draft pick practiced in full this week after lingering knee issues limited him to just five games over the past two years.
"Just comparing, it's a night and day difference to where I was at last year," Verrett said Wednesday, via the team's official website. "I'm ready to get back to playing at the level I know I can play at. Man, I feel like me out there again. I feel like Feeva is coming back!"
Night and day difference ranks with best shape of my life on the list of tried-and-true NFL offseason tropes.
In this case, however, defensive boss Bradley vouches for Verrett's claims.
"His skill set, what he has, his speed, his athleticism, his change of direction -- it is elite," Bradley said. "Just to see him go through the individuals sometimes, you see a guy come back from an injury like that, it takes some time. I don't see it right now. The way he's working out (and) the way he's practicing, he's in a really good place right now."
