New York Giants' Justin Tryon on Competition at Cornerback : I'll Be Fine

Last offseason, the New York Giants suffered a slew of devastating injuries to several key players. Among those players were cornerbacks Terrell Thomas, Prince Amukamara, and Brian Witherspoon. This left the team short-handed at a key position, and it necessitated General Manager Jerry Reese to search the free agent scrap-heap for an unsigned, yet capable player to come in and...

Did Justin Tryon do enough to make the Redskins' final roster?

Third-year cornerback Justin Tryon intercepted a pass and broke up another Thursday night in a 20-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. But did Tryon do enough? Before his performance in the preseason finale, Tryon was on shaky ground to make the opening 53-man roster, according to people with knowledge of the situation. And it's doubtful he could have done enough in the last preseason...

Tryon Might Have Found Just the Right Slot

Playing in the slot, second-year nickel cornerback Justin Tryon had his best performance in the 16-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tryon had a sack on a corner blitz and covered and tackled well, apparently strengthening his position in the defensive backfield rotation. Top corner DeAngelo Hall has played in the slot often to this point, but the Redskins would prefer to...

Tryon More at Ease in Bigger Role

For the last couple of weeks, I've been hearing that second-year cornerback Justin Tryon has been making strides in practice. Tryon struggled when the coaches gave him opportunities in preseason games, and was burned repeatedly in coverage in the 2008 preseason as a rookie.
