Key quote on Gerald Sensabaugh:
"Sensabaugh's a cover safety. He can play strong [safety] but he can cover well, so that gives us some versatility. They can't split out a tight end on us or a back. He can play the slot guy and play man to man so he gives us some versatility at strong safety that we hadn't had."
