Kelly Well, we now need to find a starting SS for 16 games instead of the 7 that he usually misses per year due to injury.
I thought he was pretty terrible but better/clearer scheme should give him a chance to display the athleticism we drafted him for.
Jones is a great tackling box safety, no ones denying that, but I'm fairly confident he can't cover even the slowest of tight ends right now, needs to work on it. Will be a long season for green bays secondary
I like Burnett. Jones may be the upgrade in the future but he got a lot he can learn from the vet
A very notable characteristic of both Bostic & Burnett is their intelligence & ability to call defensive signals & communicate. Has been an on-going problem for #Steelers defense.
