Kurt Coleman is starting over Jaiquan Jarrett (temple). The depth charts were actually released today on the team site.
And I haven't heard anything about those guys playing safety. But there's a lot of talk of Aso/Samuel being the starters with Aso going inside in 3/4 receiver sets. Juan Castillo has talked about wanting to use Aso like Charles Woodson in ways such as blitzing.
Oh yeah, my friend said Ronnie Brown looks really slow but I guess with age and injuries that's expected. He should be able to stay fresh though since he won't be getting more than 100 carries this season (maybe closer to 80). I don't think we were looking to find a complement to Shady as much as we were looking for a guy who fits our style (pass catching) should Shady miss some games.
