Cortez Allen wants to be lockdown corner


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen would like to become a shadow corner and follow around the opposing team's best receiver, reports the official team website. He would be replacing Ike Taylor in that role if it happens in 2014. 

"Of course," Allen said. "I've always liked to challenge myself. I've always wanted that challenge just to see how I match up. And it's always fun to go against talent like that. Ike's done it before me. Hopefully, one day I'll be in that position to be the level of player that he is. It's a day-by-day process. I'm just trying to learn as much as I can from him and the guys around me. Wherever I am in the defense, wherever they see fit, what's best for the team, then that’s where I'll be. I've never been a guy who said, 'I want to play on this side or that side.' We’re both capable of playing either side. And we're both capable of playing anybody we face. It's always us. It's never them."
