After Sunday’s practice, defensive boss Rick Minter talked about what he has seen early on from his unit. Most of the talk is about the transition to his scheme, picking up where the team left off from the spring.
When asked about newcomers, Minter said “we have three safeties that have to integrate themselves into the mix because that’s where we have our most challengable depth.” Says there are not a lot of first-year players outside of the secondary that might see action early.
“We’ve got a lot of old guys, a lot of young guys, not a lot of in-between guys,” Minter said.
His early summation: “We’ve got tons of work to do.”
