Chip Kelly to Vernon Adams: “Keep fighting”

Mar 11, 2016 at 9:17 AM--

During an interview with OregonLive, former Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. stated that a transition from the Ducks' offense to a Chip Kelly offense in San Francisco 49ers could possibly be a little easier for him. However, he also stated that he is ready to learn no matter where he goes.

As far as his talk with Chip Kelly at the NFL Combine in February, Adams said that Kelly did not have much to say. He simply told him to keep fighting and keep battling. "Just keep having fun and enjoy the process."

"Adams ran the 40-yard dash in 4.85 seconds, jumped 28 inches in a vertical leap test and threw close to 40 passes to receivers Bralon Addison and Byron Marshall. Adams is projected to be a late round draft pick," says Jen Beyrle of OregonLive.

Tough task: 49ers can't let Packers WR Davante Adams have another big game

Davante Adams, the two-time first-team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler, is among the best wide receivers in the NFL. He's been one of quarterback Aaron Rodgers' most reliable weapons this season and will be someone the San Francisco 49ers defense has to slow down during Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Adams has been a handful for the 49ers in recent years. The receiver has hauled in 48 receptions for 618 yards and five touchdowns in five meetings with the Niners since 2018, including the 2019 season's nine-reception, 138-yard performance in the NFC Championship Game. That's an average of nearly 124 yards per game. He's been dominant. "I just think of how balanced he is and how his lower half is with his feet," head coach Kyle Shanahan said
