Cornerbacks Crezdon Butler and T.J. Heath got a ton of work in Thursday night’s preseason finale against Detroit. With Stephon Gilmore out for the foreseeable future it’s left a prime opportunity for someone among the cornerbacks left to seize the job while Gilmore is out. Head coach Doug Marrone after the Thursday night game is looking for a bit more from the players he had on the field covering receivers.
“I think we’ve got to do a better job in press,” said Marrone. “Again we’ve got to be up there and contend more of those passes that they’re doing. We’ve got to put them in a position they can get the job done. We do have a lot of tape with them out there. We’ll be able to look at that. Obviously we wanted to look at both of those players to make a decision on where both of them were at. We rested Justin Rogers. We wanted to make sure we knew where those other two players were.”
Sounds like they know what they have in Justin Rogers, and perhaps discovered some very telling information about Butler and Heath in the game. We’ll see how it impacts the cornerback position, which is expected to carry six players including Gilmore.
