FOXBORO (CBS) – With the release of Leigh Bodden on Friday and Ras-I Dowling landing on the IR, the spotlight is on Patriots corner Antwaun Molden in Pittsburgh.
Here are some of the things he had to say when asked about the increase in his role.
How do you feel your first year with the Patriots has been going?
“I think it’s going pretty good. I just keep taking it day by day, keep working hard at the little things. We can all get better, that’s Bill Belichick’s motto.”
Toughest adjustments coming to New England after being waived by Houston?
“I’m pretty sure everyone has the same problem, especially when you’re married. It’s a business, it’s the NFL, so you come up away from your family and stuff. But I’m not the only one. I know a lot of others who do the same thing.”
With change in group with Leigh Bodden being released, does that affect things?
“Not really, because everybody has a responsibility and the next guy is going to have to step up.”
If will be interesting to see how the New England secondary does Sunday against Ben Roethlisberger and company. Their Achilles heal has been the big play, and Ben has the perfect weapon in Mike Wallace to exploit that deficiency.
