    He was likely just fodder for Special Teams, Mike. Not saying he wouldn't be missed there but if this kid Trent is a better CB...

    I didn't think you could use the term "camp fodder" for a guy who was been playing in regular season games for the past 6 or so years. Isn't that term generally used to un-drafted rookies who have no chance of making the team ?

    The club is trying to replace Byron Westbrook's special teams contribution and at the same time find a corner that can at least be a backup solution at CB in case there are injuries.

    Torrence has the ST skills but as with Westbrook offers little to no help at CB.

    The addition of Trent is a move to try and find a corner with some cover ability.

    Could be a sign that Brandyn Thompson (or one of the other recently-drafted CBs) is showing good progress in OTAs.

    I would think, if anything, that plowing through your coach in practice, and ramming him into the ground, would actually count against you
