    Since VH3 has been out Evans has been working in the slot. Any idea why he’s there and not MJ Stewart? Just weird to me that we have both VH3 and Stewart to play in the slot but we pull our starting Safety to go there. I guess were rolling with Whitehead and Conte as starting Safeties this week.

    Yes, for the fourth day in a row, S Justin Evans is getting work in the slot in the first-team nickel.

    True, maybe this will help with his coverage skills.

    Unreal that we may be rolling into yet another season with Conte starting.

    Can we please let a player play more then one year at his position before we cross train. We have more then one slot corner. We have this guy named MJ stewart on our team…hes a pretty good slot corner.

    If anyone commenting here has followed along, they would know he’s just filling in due to injuries so they have a body at the position.

    He’s not being groomed to play nickel too.

    Doesnt hurt to help him learn it in the case of injuries.

    Exactly Balla85. And again, having a guy like Evans improve his coverage skills is a bonus. Having him know another assignment makes him able to move at least one guy (Stewart), if he is aligned improperly.

    Meh. I still can’t believe we’re rolling with Conte.

    Well at least give Conte some credit… his Twitter response where he said he wasn’t worried seems to be spot on.

    I think they just want Evans to get experience at CB so they can mix up their coverages more. Don’t forget they tried to lock him up in man against Julio Jones a few times last year. Like all other Bucs (except somehow Sterling Moore) he failed. He was at least in decent position defending Julio’s highlight catch though.

    @Bucsbay They said that they were thin and nickel and moved him down due to only having 1 nickel back healthy. experience there wont hurt, but the purpose wasnt to get him time at the spot. it just worked out that way.

    Evans is playing as the nickel back because the Bucs currently have no other options to play there due to injury. All this tells us is that if the Bucs are missing Hargreaves, Davis and/or Grimes their option as a 3rd or 4th option might be Evans. With the personnel which would be available, does anyone have any better suggestions or can the entirety of the board not read updates going back 4 or 5 days?

    Stewart is healthy, and was drafted with nickel being his primary position. If they wanted to do what they would do in the regular season, he would be starting there.

    To the completely dense within this thread, Evans has been taking snaps at nickel within the two units they utilize during camp.
