I have been hearing lots of good things about Malcom Butler and Travis Hawkins. I believe Butler was here towards the end of last year, not sure. He seems to be taking full advantage of his reps in camp. Travis has logged a couple interceptions and has also shown well on kickoff returns. I am not sure if he plays on any other s/t units. Butler has said to have displayed tight coverage throughout the first week of camp and looks like a player. J.Green is another holdover from last year to keep an eye on. He has made some plays as well.
So last week I mentioned how I read that Revis inviting a bunch of guys out to Arizona work out for 4 months and all the Pats DBs seemed to have benefited from it. Tavon Wilson for instance has looked better and is in a battle between Chung and Harmon for the SS spot. What I found surprising is that Kyle Arrington did not join his secondary mates in Arizona and coincidentally, he has been the main guy mentioned when WRs are making plays. Now being a whooping boy is nothing new for Kyle but my question is, will BB give him the axe if there is a better player in front of him?
I am not saying Butler is better by any means as I have yet to see him play a game. I just find it interesting that Arrington chose not to be involved in a team building opportunity as well as a chance to learn from the best. Logan is clearly ahead of him IMO as well as Dennard when he gets up to speed so my question is...are we gonna pay Kyle 4 million to be possibly our 5th or 6th CB on the depth chart? I think its time for him to go if Butler and or Hawkins shows up in preseason. I know, I know...he is a good special teamer...but an expensive one, no?
