Whitner was definitely drafted as a safety. He may have been recruited to OSU as a corner, but he definitely played safety for them, and that's what he was drafted as.first time poster here. Really nice layout on this site. As for Whinter, i believe he was drafted as a corner, then he was converted to a FS. I wasn't aware of him being a SS.
If you had asked me after the St. Louis win early in the season, I would have said good riddance JC. I am inclined to at least tender him to see what other teams would be willing to give. If he stayed for at least one or possibly two more years, I would like to see what Shanahan could do with him.
Perhaps the rumor isn't totally false. Maybe they are really trying to deal him, but just not to the Bills? Who knows?
