No, it means that Byrd isn't playing and somebody has to fill in. Coaching staff already knows what they're going to get from White at corner, not so much with Robinson and Bailey.

Honestly, I think they expect P-Rob to win the job anyway and Bailey is probably set as the nickel/slot guy. I don't think that reflects poorly on Corey White, we just have a very strong group of corners.

I do agree, White is a good #3. He also could excell at FS, he has good speed for that position and tackles very well, I'm curios to see how he's doing at FS.

According to Payton, White hasn't lined up at safety and is not a safety in this defense

Re: Which players are on the bubble?

It is true that we used corners lined up pretty far back last year. I think part of Ryan's defense is disguising the coverage so that the offense doesn't really know who is coming up on the ball and who is hanging back. White, Bush and Vacarro are all guys who can play just about anywhere on the field and play any role on a given down.

So basically he was just playing deep nickel back and all the tweeters kept calling it FS.
I'd like to see that look. Can't wait for next saturday
