has set his sights on becoming an All-Pro cornerback this season.He will certainly have the opportunity to prove he belongs in that category.The Panthers third-year cover man will face the some of the league's best wide receivers in the coming weeks Terron Armstead Jersey , beginning with Atlanta's Julio Jones on Sunday.Bradberry, who regularly draws the opposition's best wide receiver, will also match up with Cincinnati's A.J. Green, New York Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. and Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown in the next eight games. He'll face Jones, Tampa Bay's Mike Evans and New Orleans' Michael Thomas twice this season playing in the NFC South.Bradberry sees this season as a chance to show the rest of the league he's an elite cornerback and solidify his long-term future with the Panthers.He isn't shying away from the challenge."That is what I find fun in this game is going against the best," Bradberry said."This year is going to be a special year for him," said Panthers veteran nickel back Captain Munnerlyn. "He definitely can make a name for himself."Bradberry has come a long way since being a part of the secondary that allowed Jones to compile 300 yards on 12 receptions in a 48-33 loss at Atlanta four games into his rookie season in 2016. Bradberry started the game covering Jones but left in the first quarter with a turf toe. He returned briefly in the second half and struggled to keep up.He said the game has stuck in his memory ever since, and still remembers the crowing chanting Jones' name in the fourth quarter.He said the embarrassment of the game still serves as motivation for him."I knew we couldn't let that happen again," Bradberry said. "It was a disappointment to our fans and coaching staff. I didn't want to see that reaction on their faces again."Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Bradberry is a different player than he was back then — smarter, more experienced, smarter, and better prepared.Unlike other cornerbacks the Panthers have had — Josh Norman and this year's rookie Donte Jackson, for example — Bradberry generally doesn't say much on the field.Rivera said there is a "quiet confidence" about him."The neat thing about James is he's very steady Max Unger Jersey ," Rivera said. "You don't see a lot of change in him. He works hard and he's learned how to work. He understands what it takes in terms of studying and preparation and he talks more."Bradberry had better be ready.Jones' play hasn't dropped off since that game.He remains focal point of Atlanta's passing game. Quarterback Matt Ryan targeted Jones 19 times in the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles and he caught 10 passes for 169 yards. So Bradberry is expected a busy Sunday afternoon.Jones had 11 catches for 198 yards in two games against Carolina last year."You have to take your level of competitiveness and ability to another level when you are facing guys like that," Bradberry said of Jones.Bradberry called Jones a great athlete and the toughest receiver he's faced in his first two NFL seasons, but qualified it by saying he hasn't played against Brown."It's going to be a great matchup," Bradberry said.Bradberry only allowed opposing receivers to catch 55.9 percent of the passes thrown his way last season, according to Pro Football Focus.And while he is Carolina's unquestioned No. 1 cornerback, he knows that in order to gain some national recognition he needs to find a way to get more interceptions.He has only four in his first two seasons."That's how you get the voter's attention, that's how you get your opponent's attention is by getting interceptions, causing interceptions and getting the ball back to the offense," Bradberry said. "That's the name of the game on defense."Saints training camp: Takeaways from the first 4 days The New Orleans Saints have finally started training camp, which means the 2018 football season has finally started and we officially get relevant and interesting football things to talk about. Everything you will read below, and really anything you read online should be taken with a grain of salt for two reasons. First of all, unless you actually attended camp (I can’t), you are working off of reports Cheap Cameron Jordan Jersey , highlights, and clips, and secondly absolutely nothing is certain at this point in the process. With that said, that doesn’t mean the things we can see and toke note of at this point don’t matter. Below are my takeaways from the first four days of training camp. Tre’Quan Smith is making a lot of noise, and for all the right reasons. Smith has made at least one highlight play each practice, has consistently been able to get open deep, and more importantly has shown good hands and concentration to come down with the ball. Smith still has a long way to go as a player, as well as to prove he’s more than just the next ‘training camp all-star’ at the receiver position (just like his predecessors Adrian Arrington and Nick Toon were). Smith’s measurables and the attributes that got him drafted by the Saints in the 3rd round suggest that won’t be the case, but he will need to continue to build on his early success to not only develop chemistry with Drew Brees, but to earn the confidence of the coaches and his teammates if he wants to make an impact on Sundays. Michael Thomas is picking up right where he left off. Michael Thomas started his evolution from ‘breakout star’ to full fledged ‘super star’ towards the end of last season and into the playoffs. It’s very early, but Thomas appears to not only have not lost a step, but is getting even better. Thomas is one of the most driven players on the roster, and his work ethic and discipline are his greatest weapons. The sky is the limit for a guy like that , and Thomas is on the trajectory of being able to say he’s one of the very best in the NFL today. There is a LOT of depth along the defensive line. Take Cameron Jordan out of it since he’s a known commodity, the rest of the Saints young defensive line is deep, talented, and trying to become the driving force of this defense. From Alex Jenkins to Al-Quadin Muhammad to Trey Hendrickson all the way up to 1st round draft pick Marcus Davenport, the defensive end position is going to be a battle and has a lot of talent (remember, talent doesn’t mean finished, it just means potential). Even on the interior, Sheldon Rankins and David Onyemata are battling for starting snaps and both look good early. The Saints youth movement is going strong. Tre’Quan Smith isn’t the exception, he’s the rule, or at least it feels that way watching the young guns at Saints camp. From last year’s standout special team’s ace Justin Hardee showing flashes as good depth at corner (as noted by Nick Underhill of The Advocate), to Arthur Maulet, to 2nd and 3rd year players like Ken Crawley and Marcus Williams. The list of names goes on and on, and most are not only players that you will recognize , but players we all expect big things from. It’s very early, and there is a LOT of football yet to play, but the Saints are quietly building one of the most young and talented rosters in the league. Deon Yelder was the darling, but Dan Arnold is making the noise. Arnold has managed to make plays every day so far, and while it is WAY too soon to start making insane predictions about his future or potential, or for any UDFA for that matter, it’s good to see that the Saints may have some good developmental talents at the only position where they still have holes on offense. The newest member of the Saints media coverage team, Zach Strief, seems to like what he’s seen so far from the young converted wide receiver.
