Re: cornerback pposition

Of the candidates:

Walt Harris - has starting experience with the Bears, and was overqualified as a mickel back last year. Not as dynamic as Smoot, but no slouch. Also relatively inexpensive.

Darnell Wilds - Undrafted rookie free agent with promise, but no guarantee he can handle the full-time nickel role, much less starting CB.

Ade Jimoh - In a recent poll of DC-area school age children, was voted the most popular #23 in sports, beating Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and others. Still no threat to start, but a fun tidbit.

Antrell Rolle (no relation to Samari) - Gibbs typically doesn't start rookies, and the draft hasn't happened yet. If the team drafts him, expect him to start the season on the bench, and work his way off.

Also, look for late cuts on the free agent market (I can't figure out why Andre Dyson isn't getting some action out there).

Re: cornerback pposition

It's Garnell Wilds and Antrel Rolle is not related to Samari. I think Harris will start and we'll promote someone within to be the nickel, most likely Wilds.

Re: cornerback pposition

If we draft I'd rather have Pac-man! Little smaller, but much faster, willing to sacrifice his body. Like Smoot only faster and more athletic!

I still think Harris and June 1st cut guys could fill the role.

Re: cornerback pposition

Most definitely. I also read somewhere that they might try Andre Lott at CB.

Agree about Harris

It's Garnell, not Darnell. Hope they don't make that same mistake on his bust in Canton

I just bought a new pair of Air Jimohs

I can't understand why Dyson is getting no action either....I think the team likes Rufus Brown as well, right

Re: cornerback pposition

With a name like Brud, I'm usually pretty sensitive about spellings. To Garnell and the Wilds family, my heartfelt apologies.

Re: cornerback pposition

I really do think we have depth at CB. We just need to let Williams analyze in the offseason. He helped make bold decisions to not overpay Smoot and Pierce so I'm sure he has a great master plan.

Re: cornerback pposition

I think the starters will be Springs/Harris and Wilds as Nickel. Wilds may even jump Harris at some point.

Re: cornerback pposition

I GOT A PAIR OF AIR CHRISTIAN SLATTERS! Slatter maxes! Rocking the newest in Ben Stiller wear!

Good ol' WutAng!

I'd love to see Jimoh be our starter. We'd get burned. But every time he made a play I'd feel like I just entered heaven!

Re: cornerback pposition

The Ade Jimoh Fan Club would increase exponentially with every play. The "Ade" knows what it means to be a superstar.

Re: cornerback pposition

In todays Virginia Pilot sports section they were talking about Gibbs two press conf.. They said he was going to give Williams a Try. He said they played him alittle reserved last year do to his knee. The editore also commented that it will be late into traning camp before they will know if his knee will hold up. I don't know where he came up with that.
