Morris Claiborne: Dallas Cowboys' new defensive scheme 'not what everybody thinks it is' - DMN
Claiborne explains how the new Cowboys defense isn't simply a base Cover-2 scheme:
"I think it’s going to be good. It’s not quite what everybody thinks it is – a true Cover 2. We mix in a lot of different things and we play a lot of man-to-man as well, so it’s not what everybody thinks it is [where] we’re just going to be sitting back playing Cover 2 the whole game. So I think it’s going to fit in with the personnel that we have with the team and the guys we have on the team. I think it’s going to work out."
