Alterraun Verner vs. Tommie Campbell
Arguably the last training-camp battle that hasn’t been decided features Alterraun Verner and Tommie Campbell. While Verner has gotten most of the preseason starts (three), there’s a chance that each cornerback will alternate starts during the regular season. Campbell would focus on bigger, physical receivers (e.g. Julio Jones) whereas Verner would focus on receivers who are more of a speed threat.
Could this preseason game have any impact on that decision? It doesn’t seem right to put so much weight on this individual game. Only time will tell whether one of these cornerbacks can win the No. 2 cornerback job outright.
