Ramping up and aiming for a fully healthy season, San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo ran into some tough competition in his own team’s secondary.

Broke streak with TD to Jalen Hurd
With high hopes attached following his acquisition, Garoppolo played only three games last season before tearing his ACL. Second-year player Tarvarius Moore nabbed two of those picks before Garoppolo connected with the rookie Jalen Hurd and later capped off practice with a TD to new addition Jordan Matthews.

Patriots rookies sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Mike Vrabel
Once a Patriot, always a Patriot? Early in a joint practice, Bill Belichick sent the New England rookies to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to longtime Patriots linebacker and current Titans head coach Mike Vrabel.

Vrabel, who turns 44 today, won three Super Bowl rings as a player under Belichick from 2001 to 2008.
