Watch Cox play. He was put of football due to legal issues that should not come up again.
Rogers played nickel all year Brown remained outside
Rogers IS the better corner because he can play both inside and outside. When we went nickel we kicked him inside because he is agile enough to handle the slot receivers. Brown consistently lined up against the #1s on passing downs because of this, giving him a ton of experience and I agree that he held his own against the #1s. Culliver played the opposite side and did a great job for a rookie, remember we CHOSE to have Cully cover Calvin F*%$ing Johson, think about that a Rookie #3 CB covering the best WR in football? Yes he was part of a collective effort that allowed CJ to collect 7 catches for 113 yards but he was a big reason why we kept CJ out of the endzone that game.
For those reasons I dont see Cox beating out any of our top 3 CBs, he has an outside chance of doing so but more then likely he will be our #4 CB with Brock as the #5, pushing Holcomb down to PS.
