Weakest position on the team. They will be protected by the amazing front 7 we have.We're bringing purple back.

All of a sudden, re-signing Sharper didn't seem like such a bad idea. Things that make ya go hmmm..."I hate when threads are destroyed by facts and logic."

I totally was on board with letting Sharper go, but in hindsight ... the lack of available talent out there should have made us at least offer him something small to stick around.

It is a VERY valid concern.
I'm thinking out depth at CB may play in to the lack of concern about this.
For better or worse, Winfield surely could play S and let some of the younger CBs slide in for him.
Certainly this is going to hurt our coverage but I think it has some potential.
The idea of him finishing his career as a safety has been brought up multiple times...
I'm NOT cool with any of the backup safeties playing for any length of time, I know that.
I think a better choice would have been to switch someone like Allen, Paymah, Sapp, or McCauley to safety. McCauley especially really could use a new position right about now.
But, of course, it's a bit late to be trying such experiments at this point. So what you're left with, if Antoine were to play safety, is Allen (probably) at CB, and Sapp or McCauley at nickel. That's not much more of a pleasant thought to me than having Abdullah or Frampton starting at safety, with the corners staying as they were.
That being said, there's no saying that either of the other guys you mentioned wouldn't be better off switching - Allen in particular would be intriguing since he hasn't had years of playing CB in the NFL... who knows.
I also like the McCauley idea... hate to see him not make the squad given his talent...
Trust me, I'm a doctor.
