Phins sign a one-year wonder cornerback

Post by JMP on Wed Jul 26, 2017 11:30 am

The Phins signed washed up CB Alterraun Verner. Verner was about as good as it gets in 2013 for the Titans (cough...contract year...cough), but pretty much sucked after getting a huge payday from the Bucs. He's got good ball skills and tons of experience, and I guess that's a good thing, but this guy has been AWFUL the last couple of years. Maybe the Phins can let him compete for the nickle job, but seems like a waste to me.

That's exactly what I've read. He gets the chance in camp to unseat McCain as the starter at nickel. Outside is already crowded with Maxwell, Howard, Lippett, Tankersley competing for two spots.

Oh I also read that Thomas is competing at nickel too, so Verner would need to beat both of them out.

It would be great if Verner could return to form, but 2013 was a long time ago.

I think the Bucs moved him to nickle because he was getting torched outside, but I'm not sure it helped.

maybe Verner was better playing press technique with the Titans and the Bucs primarily being a zone team didn't suit his style? at the very least, this will hopefully push McCain to be better.
