Instead the Cats will leave Cason, a potential All-American, at cornerback. Right now the plan is to continue to use Ross at nickel back. Michael Klyce, Nate Ness and Brandon Tatum are all competing to replace Dominic Patrick at the safety spot. Patrick is out several weeks with a knee injury.
Stoops considered making the move, not only to get Ross to his natural cornerback spot, but to get Cason is a position where he has greater opportunities to make a play on the ball.
In the end the staff did not want to risk putting Cason, their best cover man, at a spot where he was not as familiar.
