Which CB Tandem Will It Be?

Which CB Tandem Will It Be?

The two veterans will start, but I feel alot better about having Brown and Spencer as the Nickel and backup CB's. Depth will be key this year.
In my honest opinion, I think Shawntae Spencer is over-rated. I have never seen anything special from him! Plus, he cannot stay healthy.

I'd have to go with Bly starting the season, his experience will get him the job, unless of course he really sucks in TC and Pre-season. I think the depth chart will pretty much be:

1. Clements
2. Bly
3. Brown
4. Spencer

Hopefully one of our undrafted rookies will earn the 5th spot on the team, unless Hudson can hold onto the job as a CB/Safety. I'm hoping Roman gets the axe, I'd really like to see what Reggie Smith, Curtis Taylor and Marcus Hudson have to offer.

It does look like we are going to have a good battle for the last CB spot though:

Terrail Lambert
Carlos Thomas
Jahi Word-Daniels

And I wouldn't quite say Shawntae Spencer's job is safe. If he even gives a hint of an injury, I would think Spencer would get the axe, hes missed too much time over his short career.
I would love to see Brown step up but i do agree that we will be seeing Bly opposite Clements.

However, Bly will be on a short leash and i will not at all be surprised if Brown makes a start sometime.
