Yeah. It was more or less just a consolidating of all notable quotes from the Bengals coaches made about him. I had read some of those quotes, but not all of them, so I thought it was worth sharing.

No question it was worth sharing.

Where do you see him playing in Zimmer's defense? I'm guessing they'll start him at FS to ease his transition to the NFL but eventually work him into SS.

Given the adaptation of Reggie Nelson in Zimmer's scheme as a FS, I would think Sands would make the most sense at SS. Ndukwe was a SS and I think he's not coming back. Crocker/Nelson at FS... Roy W./Sands at SS. Seems to make the most sense. Nelson sticks as a FS/CB for depth. Maybe they can grab another vet SS in case Roy W sprains his scrotum early in camp.
