From Jay Adams’ transcript of Drew Brees’ call with Falcons media:
“He’s a very talented player. Obviously, I remember him from playing against the Texans when I was in the AFC playing with the Chargers, and he’s only gotten better as he’s gotten older. He adds an element where obviously they feel pretty confident locking him up on a receiver backside and doing whatever they want to do frontside. That’s probably another reason you’re able to bring more pressure, when you’re confident the corners are able to hold up one-on-one. He’s definitely been an upgrade for them.”
Yes, but can he hide behind your receiver due to his diminutive stature, a la his predecessor Chris Houston? He cannot.
