Followed a couple of links in the LB thread and was wondering how he may fit in as a 3rd CB with us.
Rams' James Laurinaitis headed for free agency - NFL.com
Speaking of roster holdovers, wide receiver Brandon Gibson ($1 million salary and cap number) and the previously mentioned Fletcher ($1.202 million salary) could be pushed off the roster.
Bradley Fletcher can tackle - Turf Show Times
Evidence continues to pile up demonstrating that St. Louis Rams CB Bradley Fletcher is becoming a bona fide stud at the position. Today's exhibit comes via Football Outsiders and their game charting data which reveals that Fletcher is one of the surest tacklers among the league's defensive backs.
He is coming off another ACL thoughWhy must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

Just remember that with our defense - the 3rd spot likely is the outside spot where you match up with the 2nd reciever from the other team because Winfield who is likely to start will cover the nickle.
We need a good season from him and Josh Robinson in order to have a chance in this division.
PUT IN JACKSON!

I won't be surprised if Whinny isn't the starter this year. Again, lets remember that Cook and Whinny play the same side of the field. Whinny sucks in pass coverage. We have a glut of RCB's that could/should start on that side especially Carr.

I think we will see alot of Carr (RCB) and Cook (LCB) during preseason with Whinny coming in on nickle and dime packages, just like we did with Cook and Griffin when Griff was on the field.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Winfield is the most reliable tackler we've had for awhile.
So which is it, you don't like the system or just don't like Winfield?

Is he a sure tackler? Sure, but that is normally only in run support, that is what he is known for. As a pass defender he has always been suspect, and now that he is getting up there, it is even worse.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Of course this is ignoring the fact that he was/is an elite/great zone corner. Two different skillsets and its not just about tackling. Zone corners have a knack on break on the ball to disrupt the pass. Man coverage is a bout fluidity and timing the jump, rip, tackle to disrupt the offensive player. Where is Marr to talk some sense in you guys when you need him?

I wish I had my game notes with me, I can't tell you how many times over the last 3 years I watched him run so far behind receivers running a 1 or a 2 route with the CB on the other side (or S) finally making the tackle.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.
