One of the knocks on Asante was his rumored preference for playing LCB (one might say, his rumored refusal to play RCB). Here's a quote from Reiss today in an article on Fernando Bryant. This could be Capers' influence. This could be a new freedom from having CBs that request or require a particular side of the field. What impact will position flexibility have? Will CBs who match up well on a particular receiver now follow that receiver when they go in motion? Will CBs switch up to confuse the opposing QB as part of the Patriot's general style of a multi-faceted defense? Or is it simply that Bryant will have to play RCB if he is to compete for a starting position, since he won't beat out the #1 guy, who typically plays on the left? My feeling is Capers wants flexibility to deal with injuries and to game plan opponents.
