Yet he's still 5'10".....be as physical as you want, that still won't help him defend a 6'4" TE, especially when coverage isn't his strength to begin with. What do people not comprehend about the massive disadvantage having two of the smallest starting safeties in the NFL, starting in the SAME secondary, would represent????
You can get by with one under-sized safety.....you don't get by with two under-sized strong safeties, of which neither presents a strength in their ability to cover.
