dude played extremely well last year given his supposed level of talent and the situations he was forced into. i'm not comfortable with him starting (and i doubt gettleman is either) but i hope he sticks around. we need quality depth and he's a good start.

Love J. Thomas, the type of player we need to keep around for depth (and god knows we need that at CB).

It was probably more Rivera's defensive scheme than anything. He made scrubs look good in SD too.

He's the only decent thing going about our secondary for next year.

DJ Campbell also showed promise. I think both are good to have to simply see where things can go, not necessarily be insta-starters but great for depth. You never though...they could end up really good.

All things considered, I'm fine with him as our CB2 if we make some moves for a new starter and nickel.

I thought he played well as a backup and occasional starter. I look forward to him playing even more this year,

The way I see it, Thomas and Dockery are solid backup corners (both are great on coverage). Captain is also a good backup, but has the potential to be one of the better nickels in the league. Norman, if he gets it together, has more potential than all of them and is worth a shot to see if he improves - or he could suck. With that said, if and when Gamble gets cut, we really need an experienced, starting caliber CB, or somehow get a 3rd round pick to draft one (class is pretty deep this year).

meh

I don't see any DB we have as a #1 now that Gamble is suppose to be cut. Can't imagine anyone covering #1 receivers...

Captain will be there but he won't be tall enough...but given what we got him for Captain has done great, but he should not be the starter....really just rotational.

Our scouting dept did a nice job realizing Josh could play and getting him off waivers from Dallas.

Yeah, always wonder why a team parts ways with a guy like that. Same thing with Darius Butler.

Yah I honestly say we take the best CB available at 14 and look at DT in 2nd round, or line. I think if we let Gamble go, and what's on the market for what we can afford besides Sean Smith, our best bet is Best Corner available come 14. Hell Revis was taken at 14 right?

we have so many holes i dont know what the hell were gonna do. I've come to the conclusion that i would just like to help Cam. Get O-line help and some weapons, whether free agency or draft, were gonna have to mix it up a bit. worry about defense in later rounds. unless of coure someone unreal drops.

Sorry to break it to you folks, but we need one of these so called "backups" to be a starter. Let's get real for a second, Gamble is gone, we have no money for FA and our biggest problems are on offense. Josh Thomas is going to be that starter, I feel confident in saying that. Who the other starter is I don't know. The man goes for the neck of Falcon's players, should be everyones favorite Panther.
