Patriots’ Secondary Striving Despite Lack Of Continuity At Strong Safety

FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots are trotting out the rare “strong safety-by-committee” this season. Duron Harmon, Patrick Chung and Tavon Wilson were supposed to be competing for the starting role at strong safety during training camp and the preseason, but head coach Bill Belichick has chosen to move forward with a rotation next to Devin McCourty instead through...

Is Tavon Wilson good?

Patriot's beat writer Mike Reiss posted today about Tavon Wilson, labeling him a "wild card," and raising some excellent questions about the Patriots safety coming off his rookie season.
