NASHVILLE – The pads came on for the first time on Monday, and rookie cornerback Roger McCreary showed out.
McCreary got his hands on a half-dozen footballs during today’s session. It continued a stretch of good practices for the team’s second-round pick.
His teammates – on both sides of the football – have taken notice.
“He’s sticky,” cornerback Kristian Fulton said of McCreary. “He’s always in position. I feel like he’s a guy who is going to come in and help us tremendously. He’s getting his hands on the ball. We want to create more turnovers, and that’s the next step for him – turning those PBUs (pass break-ups) into interceptions. Not just for him, but for all of us.”
