New Orleans Saints cornerback Jabari Greer declined to delve into non-football related matters Monday, but said the team's first day of voluntary workouts was in many ways a salutary one. Greer is one of the players who, along with quarterback Drew Brees, has remained steadfast in his insistence the Saints did not try to injure opponents deliberately in the bounty scandal that has engulfed the team, and he will be expected to play an even bigger leadership role on the Saints this fall as the club navigates a season without its head coach.

"It was great to see the guys again; no matter the adversity we are presented, seeing those guys brought joy to my heart," Greer said. "We really have a great locker room, so knowing that we are going into the season with guys that are like-minded about our goal was comforting."

Jabari Greer is our best corner by far but really no one behind him on the depth chart. We are thin at corner......very thin.

Agreed. Cornerback will definitely be a point of emphasis in the draft. P-Rob will be much better in coverage now that we won't be all-out blitzing on every play and we all think Johnny Patrick has tremendous upside... but that's all we have.

While I agree that right now Jabari's our best CB, Patrick Robinson is right on his heels and will probably overtake him by season's end.

From an earlier post last manth...

Patrick Robinson was the 7th best rated CB in the entire league at opposing QB rating.

Rank Name Team NFL Rating
1 Darrelle Revis NYJ 45.6
2 Asante Samuel PHI 52.4
3 Chris Gamble CAR 53.3

6 Richard Sherman SEA 57.3
7 Patrick Robinson NO 59.3 8 Brandon Carr KC 61.7
