Orlando Scandrickon getting the starting role at cornerback:

“I’m competing against myself — and let the cards fall where they may. I’m going to go out there and do the best I can and compete against myself. I can’t worry about what Mike or Terence or DeAngelo Smith or Mike Mickens or everybody else is doing.”

“It’s a totally different year. I’m still trying to impress and still trying to show them what I can do.”

    very surprising about ellis. maybe they are giving him a chance to stay. his play at its best is worth his cap hit for sure. if hes slowing down, its time to explore a trade or cut him outright.

    Ellis was a solid player last year I say keep him
