I think he has college experience at CB. Couple that with familiarity with the system and the new renegotiated contract coming off an injury thing it makes sense that he would get a shot.
Thanks for the reply. I still don't get it. Yes, he has college experience at CB, but he has pro experience at safety. And I don't see why his injury would make him any better at cb than safety. And my point was that we should be just as concerned about depth and competition at safety as we are at nickelback, so I don't see why we'd feel the need to give him "a shot" at nickelback. He was fine at safety, and right now, we don't have much behind two veterans who've never played in our system. That's why this move doesn't make sense to me unless they think he can be a top-tier nickelback for some reason. I hope he can.
