Sunday Knights: Former Secondary Crushing It

Stew Milne-USA TODAY Sports

Read it and weep as former secondary stalwarts succeed in the NFL while Rutgers wallows in sorrow.

SCHIANO WATCH: The billboards are up. Star corner Darrelle Revis isn't sure if the team backs Schiano. The owners even met with the embattled coach. The former Rutgers head coach definitely seems to be headed for unemployment, and it doesn't seem like Schiano will get his first win this Sunday when the Bucs travel to Seattle to face Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. Does this mean Robb Smith will be open to returning to Piscataway? We'll have to wait and see. On to the rest of Knights in the NFL:

Kenny Britt (WR, Tennessee Titans)

Looks like Britt is staying with the Titans. The NFL trade deadline came and went, with only Eagles NT Isaac Sopoaga being traded to the Patriots. With his career in jeopardy in Tennessee, Britt might look to be traded this offseason with only one year left on his contract.

Marcus Cooper (CB, Kansas City Chiefs)

Cooper might be looking at a starting job soon. Current starter Sean Smith is apparently struggling at the position, while Marcus appears to be coming on white hot. Our fellow SB Nation Chiefs affiliate even has Cooper in their rookie midseason awards watch. The rookie had two total tackles in last Sunday's win against the Browns.

Anthony Davis (RT, San Francisco 49ers)

Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the former Piscataway product, saying that Davis is definitely having his best year since being drafter 11th overall.

Khaseem Greene (OLB, Chicago Bears)

Make sure to keep an eye on next weeks Monday Night Football matchup when the Bears visit the Packers. The former two-time defensive POTY has a good chance at getting his first start with Lance Briggs out of the lineup.

Duron Harmon (SS, New England Patriots)

Harmon had a fortuitous game against the Dolphins this past Sunday, getting his first interception off of QB Ryan Tannehill in the waning moments of the fourth quarter.

Brian Leonard (RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

The former fullback had one carry for seven yards in a loss against the Carolina Panthers.

Devin McCourty (FS, New England Patriots)

Devin McCourty played a part in one of the best plays of the year while intercepting Miami QB Ryan Tannehill. He finished with six total tackles.

Jason McCourty (CB, Tennessee Titans)

Fox Sports Tennessee grades the Titans secondary as an A-, noting the great play of Jason McCourty.

Ray Rice (RB, Baltimore Ravens)

Baltimore had a bye last Sunday, and that is good news for fantasy owners: Ray Rice typically has had great performances coming off bye weeks.

Logan Ryan (CB, New England Patriots)

A week after his pick-six off Geno Smith and a $10,000 fine for his Michael Jackson impersonation, Ryan had a strip-sack-fumble on a corner blitz. He finished with five tackles and two sacks.

Mohamed Sanu (WR, Cincinnati Bengals)

Sanu had one catch for 24 yards in the blowout win against the Jets. He continues to be listed as the No. 2 wideout opposite A.J. Green even after Marvin Jones breakout performance, but Sanu has missed practice the last two days.

Tim Wright (TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

The converted receiver continues to be utilized in the Bucs' offense, finishing with five catches (second to Vincent Jackson) for 48 yards. He added a TD late in the fourth.
