Kind of difficult for a guy thats played man coverage 90% of the time for 9 seasons to go to zone coverage every game for 2 years
This. Nnamdi is a big, physical man corner who tackles well. Speaking from personal experience, when you prefer man and have to play zone it takes the aggression out of you.

The key word "could", don't get to excited he may be exactly what he was last year and we have enough of that already. The only difference is that what we have now is younger than Nnamdi and probably cheaper.

Patric Robinson is younger and is in need of coaching and still playing on his rookie contract. How about we wait and see who's better, I already know who's younger.

No need to wait. Nnamdi has proven himself for years. I'm not giving Robinson the edge over a proven veteran. Younger isnt always better.

You're right he has proven himself over the past two years in Phili that's why they canned him.

Did any player in Philly look good over the last two years? I mean, when you make your Offensive Line coach your Defensive Coordinator there's going to be problems. I believe Nnamdi has every chance of redeeming himself and I'd rather it be with us than some other team.
TheKillerBs and Joker like this.

I agree he has the right to redeem himself just not at the expense of younger players or having to pay to much.
