I need help on this one.
So Godfrey comes back from injury, and the consensus right away is that the Panthers would like to keep him, but he'd need to transition to Nickel CB. Can someone tell me why?
Does it have to do with his injury? I realize that CB and Safety have different roles. Do safeties do too much pushing and run tackling for someone with an achilles injury?
Does it have to do with depth? More room at corner? If that were the case, I would have expected to see him playing safety, at least a little, with all of Harper's missed time.
Someone please educate me.
