I admit I have been out of the loop this offseason but I was wondering if anyone has heard Diaco's thoughts on giving out the blackshirts.
Gifford was among 16 players to receive Blackshirts before Monday’s practice. Others were defensive linemen Freedom Akinmoladun, Khalil Davis, Carlos Davis and Mick Stoltenberg; linebackers Newby, Weber, Dedrick Young II, Mohamed Barry and Alex Davis; cornerbacks Lee, Lamar Jackson and Dicaprio Bootle, and safeties Aaron Williams, Antonio Reed and Joshua Kalu, who also turned 22 on Monday.
Reed is a stud, one of the very best tacklers on this team. From everything I've read Barry was in a battle to start. NO surprise at all. ALL were earned.Wow. 16!
Goes to show just how tight some of the battles were throughout Spring/Fall camp.
I get Bootle (Nickel), and I get Gifford/Newby (those guys appear set to basically Co-start and split reps), and I can see K.Davis as NU could go to a traditional 4 man front. Little surprised to see Reed and Mo Barry there though.
O well! Congrats to those that got em!
