Biography

Pro Highlights

  • Emerged as the team’s top coverage player in 2013, matching wits with the opponent’s best receiver on a weekly basis throughout the season.
  • Had his finest statistical season in 2013, setting new career highs for starts (14), tackles (64), solo tackles (57) and passes defensed (a team-high 25), and tied his previous career best with four INTs.
  • Worked his way into the starting lineup after the beginning of the regular season in 2012, taking over as the No. 2 CB in the team’s base defense following veteran Charles Woodson’s transition to safety.
  • Started Weeks 2-6 at RCB before suffering a shin/ankle injury at Houston (Oct. 14) that sidelined him for the next six games. For the season, appeared in 10 games with eight starts and registered then-career highs with 38 tackles (27 solo) and 16 passes defensed, also ranking second on the club with three interceptions, in addition to his first career sack.
  • Also opened both of the team’s 2012 postseason contests and posted 12 tackles (all solo), two INTs (including one he returned for a TD), and five passes defensed.
  • Has now made four INTs in eight career playoff games, a total that ties him with CB Herb Adderley, DB Joe Laws, CB Craig Newsome, S Eugene Robinson and CB Tramon Williams for the most in franchise postseason history.  
  • Appeared in 15 games with seven starts in 2011, collecting 36 tackles (32 solo), a career-high four INTs, 14 passes defensed and a forced fumble.
  • A true speedster who made a major impact as a non-drafted rookie in 2010, earning the nickel CB job despite playing the position only one year in college. Finished his first season with 27 tackles (22 solo), two INTs and nine passes defensed.
  • With the exception of two missed games due to injury, held the nickel job throughout the regular season and playoffs in 2010, recording two interceptions in the regular season and two more in the NFC Championship at Chicago, the final one sealing the conference title in the game’s final minute and sending the Packers to the Super Bowl.
  • Also contributed as a return man and punt-team gunner, utilizing the speed that made him a productive receiver and special teamer his first three seasons at Miami.
  • Made the transition to cornerback as a senior and progressed rapidly as a rookie under the tutelage of position coach Joe Whitt Jr., who considered him a potential high draft pick based on raw talent alone.
