Commanders CB Kendall Fuller's competitive fire
Kendall Fuller bounced back from an indifferent first joint practice with the Baltimore Ravens to give a much better account of himself on Wednesday. The veteran cornerback made some outstanding plays and clearly relished going up against another team that looks primed to make a postseason push.
When discussing how joint practices went, Fuller's competitive fire came across in no uncertain terms via USA Today Sports. Something that is sure to benefit the Washington Commanders considerably when competitive games arrive next month.
"We had fun. We came out here, competed, put some good film out there to learn from. Made some mistakes out there that we can learn from. So overall, I felt like it was a good week. So just for the guys to come out and compete, guys make plays, you make plays and you just keep on lining up with that confidence and to see young guys consistently step up and just make plays. But just from a technique standpoint, there’s no film, no knowledge of what they do. You just line up, play your technique and trust that your technique is gonna allow you to make plays."- Kendall Fuller via USA Today Sports
Fuller has the benefit of some outstanding young players around him in the secondary next season. That takes the pressure off to a certain extent, but there's nothing to suggest the former Virginia Tech stud isn't going to be counted upon heavily thanks to his consistency and constantly evolving leadership within the locker room.
