Morgan Burnett remains in starting lineup for Packers
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/14/14) Packers safeties coach Darren Perry said Wednesday safety Morgan Burnett is not in jeopardy of losing his starting spot in the lineup, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
"Morgan’s our starting safety," Perry said. "And the other guys are competing, unless I’ve been told differently.
"He’s one of our communicators. He’s a leader on this defense. He knows it about as well as anybody back there. I would expect him to be able to command and communicate amongst the other guys in terms of what calls and what coverages and what checks we’re supposed to be in. That’s the standard operating procedure for him."
Packers safety rotation could change in preseason
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/8/14) Packers defensive back Morgan Burnett will sit out Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans, reports ESPN.com Friday.
The report also indicates that there is a chance Burnett can lose his starting job, with rookie Ha Ha Clinton-Dix expected to step in while Burnett is out. Micah Hyde is also making a transition from cornerback and has reportedly impressed coaches. Coach Mike McCarthy did note that he considers Burnett a starter, but that doesn't mean he will dominate the playing time.
"We don't get caught on 11 players, especially [when] the emphasis for our whole defense is to play more players," McCarthy said.
|Morgan Burnett remains a fixture in the Packers defensive backfield and a good Fantasy choice. Through his last three seasons Burnett has averaged 7.2 total tackles per game. That's a hefty amount for a safety, and he's put up numbers against the pass in that span as well. He should be taken as a low-end No. 2 Fantasy DB worth a middle- to late-round pick.
