'Physical' Jammer Brings Coverage Skills to Safety

Posted Jul 16, 2013

Quentin Jammer, who played 11 years at cornerback in San Diego, believes he can use those skills at safety if that's where the Broncos need him.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Quentin Jammer spent 11 years at cornerback in San Diego. Now that he's getting a look at safety, he expects that experience to serve him well in the transition.

"I always considered myself a football player, not really put a label on myself as a corner or a safety," Jammer said when he signed. "This is the game of football, and I feel like I can be plugged in anywhere on the defense and play — other than the big hosses up front. Any of the skill positions in the back end I can be plugged in and play."

One trait the Broncos hope Jammer brings is the ability to keep track of the growing number of athletic tight ends throughout the league.

That's what came to quarterback Peyton Manning's mind when he addressed Jammer's signing.

"I am excited about Quentin Jammer," Manning said at the time. "Whether he is playing corner, possibly playing some safety, he’s a guy they can put in in the dime package and let him cover an athletic tight end. ... So, we are glad to have him and I know he’s excited to be here.”

Champ Bailey called Jammer "a true tackler," noting that he's always appreciated the toughness that Jammer has brought to the position.

And whether he's covering tight ends or wide receivers, the Broncos are just happy to have him.

"You’re looking for guys in the back end that help you defend some of the multiple wide receiver sets that you deal with on a pretty consistent basis," Defensive Coordinator Jack Del Rio said in June. "Week-in-and-week-out you’re dealing with three, four and sometimes five receiver sets, so having DBs that can cover is a good thing.”

"He’ll give us some flexibility," Head Coach John Fox said when Jammer was signed. "He’s a bigger, more physical DB that we think will help us.”

As long as he's helping the team win, Jammer said he doesn't care where he's lined up or who he's covering. And he has faith that he can get the job done regardless of what is asked of him.

“I think being a versatile player has become a staple in this league," he said. "I think it’s becoming more popular, a guy who can move to multiple positions. I think one of the guys who made that transition, who brought it along, was Rod Woodson. Then Charles Woodson had great success with it. I think I’m that type of player, where I can come in. I can cover safety, I can cover wide receivers, I can pretty much cover anybody on the field. I’ve been doing it for 11 years. Why stop now?”
