We know one starter at CB: Xavier Rhodes. But, who will be the other?

Terence Newman - Old Man (only 5 years younger than me) K-State Wildcat


Josh Robinson, 4th year out of Daunte's alma mater


Trae Waynes, Rookie Spartan


or the Field (Prater, Carter, Munnerlyn, Price, Van Dyke, Coleman, Sherels)

With a torn pectoral, Robinson seems highly unlikely to be ready to go by week one. We don't know the severity of the injury, but he could even miss the entire season.

Right now my money would have to be on Newman to open the season, just because I don't expect Zimmer to give the nod to a rookie cornerback. And that's kind of scary. Newman and Munnerlyn in the nickel?

I agree with you concerning Robinson. A pectoral injury can result in a long recovery, and as it might limit the range of motion of the arm on the effected side, it would be especially bad for a CB!

I also agree that Newman might be the logical game 1 starter because of his experience...but for the first part of the season the position will probably be filled by committee.

the starting spot is definitely newman's to lose, and I don't anticipate he will lose it.

I think Newman will be starting at outside CB and it wouldnt surprise me if Trae Waynes is the nickel outside CB with Newman moving inside to slot.

Newman as CB#2, Waynes CB#3 to start the season.

I went with Newman as well. I really believe that Minnesota believes they have a team worthy of contending(I agree) I don't think they'd throw Trae in that early however I'm reserving the right to change my mind until after I watch the preseason games to see how far along Waynes is.
