How many DBs does the team carry usually? I am thinking we'll be a lot better in the secondary this year with a healthy Troy, BMac being back plus a year of experience under the belt of Keenan Lewis and Joe Burnette. Plus now that we don't have Carter and Townsend aging in our secondary. I am optomistic that we'll be much better in the secondary this year...then you read from the Trib what Horton is saying about the rookie Crezdon Butler...see below:
Coaches don't usually single out rookies - unless it is to correct their mistake — but cornerback Crezdon Butler has made an impression on secondary coach Ray Horton.
"(No.) 40 is rising," Horton said of Butler, a 6-1, 190-pounder drafted in the fifth round. "I know I'm talking about a rookie, but it looks like he's going to make our team better."
