Crazy Legs Posted May 24 Share Posted May 24 OP - I really liked what I saw from Christian Benford at Corner last year. I have never agreed with handing the CB2 job outright to Elam. Sounds like today in OTAs it really is a competition, and Benford is still in it. Christian Benford going to make things tough on coaching staff BY MATT PARRINO - May 23rd Benford was a bottle full of juice throughout practice, making a number of big plays and elevating the competitive spirit on several passing downs throughout the afternoon. Benford made life difficult on Shorter on a few reps, and one he bodied the bigger receiver at the catch point and broke up a pass from Matt Barkley. It didn’t matter which receiver lined up across from Benford, the second-year cornerback was competing hard The Bills love Dane Jackson and DB Coach John Butler said the CB2 competition is between Jackson, Benford and 2022 first-round pick Kaiir Elam. Benford is playing only at cornerback for the Bills right now, per Butler, despite whispers all offseason that a move to safety might be in the cards for the former sixth-round pick. Benford’s toughness, competitive spirit, and high football IQ will make things interesting for the position battle. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
