No, you are right on. He plays the run very well. That's why they want to keep him especially against our slot and the nickel and dime Ds. I hope he takes a pay cut to be our #3 and draft a new #1 allowing Spencer to stay at #2.
Even with that new makeup in our secondary, none will be felt more than in the Safeties. If I remember right, that's his specialty. He loves to mentor and develop them. I remember Atwater,
. I know he's linked to several other big name safeties, too, so I can expect improvement overall. Yet, I can imagine what he can do with someone like Mays.
Keep Clements, get that new #1 CB either FA or Draft, and develop that young Safety group. See if Goldson stays or goes. Either way, we have a good young group. I remember that Taylor is supposed to come back, too. Before his injury he was getting much better.
Yup, now we have a coach who knows how to develop the secondary resources on our team.
