Virtual reality is about to be the big change in the NFL in 2016. Who knows if it will work but some teams are embracing it, and are expected to adopt the technology. The Dallas Cowboys were the first team to implement a plan to use it about a month ago. The Buccaneers announced they would be using it this week to help Jameis Winston, and it seems the 49ers have embraced the idea as well.
“We are pleased to announce our partnership with STRIVR Labs, which we believe will provide another tool to augment our players’ preparation,” 49ers G.M. Trent Baalke said, via Bruce Feldman of FOXSports.com. “As all teams do, we are constantly searching for methods to better prepare us for game day. We are confident that STRIVR Labs can provide an advantage.”
I do not know if it will help or not, but if Colin Kaepernick, Tony Romo and Jameis Winston put up ridiculous numbers, expect every team to contact STRIVR Labs.
