Foxworth played safety for a while. But i think one of the cornerbacks will be gone, we have too many young cornerbacks. Foxworth will probably battle Grimes for the no.2 spot now or Hutchins for the nickel job.

hutchins for the nickle job???? if hutchins beats out foxworth for the nickel job than the coaching staff is on some heavy drugs lol

last i heard grimes was the number 1 corner, and hutchins was on IR....where have you been?

I think this is bad news for chris houston, Chevis Jackson was fine as the nickel corner, and Grimes did well as the number 1 corner...Foxworth will probably come in and replace houston in a few weeks, and houston will probably be the number 4 corner behind grimes,foxworth, and Jackson

Irons better stand out on special teams, or hes a gonner

Agreed. Houston is very good even without the picks to show for it last season. He sticks to guys like glue. He just needs to get comfortable enough to get his head on the QB to find the ball. Usually he just watches the WR the whole time and looks bad when the ball comes right by his head. I think that wont happen as much this year.

It doesn't have to be secondary. It still could be Jennings.

yeah, this is a pipe dream. When Thomas Brown went down this all but assured "mr. fair catch"(Jennings) of staying on the team - reason: because Falcons don't want to be "short" a punt returner and a kickoff returner.

no way does jennings get cut now - unless Foxworth can return punts - kind of think of it, Foxworth is "fast" - did he ever return punts for Broncos?

grimes is the question mark.... i saw a lot of good things from houston last year and that was as a rookie i would imagine he has improved since than. grimes has looked so good in pre season but iv watched a lot of players stand out in pre season and than flop once the games started to count. i really like grimes but he has to prove himself with some good season play before i can fully feel comfortable with him

agree. We are really young at CB, but I do like the potental there.

there's no one on the team playing better than grimes, so you can forget about foxworth bumping him out of position. chevis jackson will have to go the 4th cb position. the rookie is the most likely scenario to lose his spot.

I think we matchup Chevis/Foxworth at nickle depending on who the slot reciever is. If its a Wes Welker type, put Foxworth on him. If its a Joe Jurivicious type put Chevis on him. If its Harry Douglass, then Foxworth would cover him. If its Finneran/Jenkins put Chevis on him. See where im goin with that?

Makes sense.

speed vs speed and size vs size might not be a bad idea

Yeah, well, everyone told me I was wrong about Pollard being cut.

I'm still hoping for Norwood to return kicks. ...punts, maybe not, but I bet Douglas could do it.

That said, I'm not crazy about Irons, either. It wouldn't be the end of my world if he was cut. It sounds like Foxworth is "cross-trained," too. I expect to see him at FS some this year in passing situations.

I would like to see Foxworth come in as a nickel guy but mainly as a kick returner or punt returner at first til he gets the system down. Smith and Thomas are both looking for a new returner to get rid of Jennings. (Look for the link yourself). Why not get rid of Jennings and bring in Foxworth? We have 6 WR's right now on the roster, we only need 5 and we have 5 really good WR's too.
