Phillips sees Quin as best suited for safety

Posted by Nick Scurfield on May 18, 2011 – 12:45 pm

The Texans have talked this offseason about moving Glover Quin, their best cornerback, to free safety. At a dinner with Texans suite holders last week, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips gave the strongest indication yet that a position switch is forthcoming.

“Glover is a good football player,” Phillips said. “I think his best abilities would be at safety, and we’re going to look at that.”

Quin is part of a secondary that, aside from sixth-year cornerback Jason Allen, doesn’t include a single player with more than three years of NFL experience.

“We want to make the secondary primary,” Phillips said. “We just have a lot of young defensive backs. That’s a little bit of a concern, but you have to build something first, and really, we felt like we had the opportunity to build our front seven (in the draft). And I think that’ll help those young guys. Part of our philosophy is not to give up big plays, so we’re going to cut down on the number of big plays and I think that’ll help us.”
