It’s Ronnie Harrison’s secondary now. With the trade to send A.J. Bouye to Denver, Harrison inherits the leadership role in the defensive backfield. It will be his job to play with more intensity than he has the previous two seasons.
Harrison has shown glimpses of Pro Bowl potential, and may be the hardest heater on this defense. We know there will be new players on this unit, but that should not change how the former Alabama star approaches the season.
None of the starters from the 2017 secondary are on the roster. It’s like a fresh start. Harrison, who has dealt with injuries in the past, must stay healthy. Going into his third season, he should be ready to become a more vocal leader and potentially lead this team in tackles in 2020.
