PJ really has started to blossom in that robber role at safety. You think heís put himself on other teamís maps as a potential starter? I wouldnít be surprisedÖ Iíve been thinking about him replacing Malcolm Jenkins.

PJs only limit is his range, in smaller Cover-2 assignments, you're right, he's played that role very well...

Yes, think teams that have much less will likely overpay to get some talent in their secondaries, robbing the terrific secondary depth we've enjoyed recently...

It canít be a coincidence that PJ Williams had his best year following the hiring of Kris Richard. We have to keep PJ because Kris has obviously unlocked something there.

Agreed, PJ used to be an absolutely liability but he's really become a solid contributor on this D.

If you think about the past few seasons, he's made a handful of huge plays in big moments, e.g;

2018 Pick 6 vs Vikings that they never recovered from

2018 vs Steelers, they were driving late for the tie / lead, PJ forced a fumble to seal the game

2021 - Pick 6 vs Brady to ice the game

Those are just a few that spring to mind for me.

I hope Adebo can build off this, he was up and down a lot but he finished the season strong.

Def had some struggles through the year. Yet stepped up at times as well. Fine showing fo a rookie CB thrown into a starter roll IMO.

Not too many people can say they picked off Aaron Rodgers, although Jason David did it twice in 2008 lol

I did like in the second Falcons game, that they tried to attack him deep and he made them look stupid.

As would be expected for a rookie. He's had an extremely impressive start.
