Should I continue?


Rod Woodson


Woodson spent part of his career as a cornerback but I still wouldn't argue him being included.


Woodson was a standout corner as part of the Steelers. Unfortunatley he tore his ACL thanks to Barry Sanders. He turned out to be a pretty good safety as well.


Even so, Sean Taylor was more talented than all those guys mentioned above. He certainly could have been the greatest had he played a full career.

As it stands. I say Ronnie Lott is the greatest safety I have ever seen. Dick night train Lane comes in second on my ballott.
Sean Taylor starting free safety Heavens team!

If you have to put a bet on the current safeties playing around the league, a bet on who's going to be great... Meast was the safest Bet.

Absolutely agreed. He was just getting to a point where he was about to redefine the standard for Free Safety.
