Packers DE C.J. Wilson Beats Out Jerel Worthy For Starting Job
C.J. Wilson has beaten out rookie Jerel Worthy as the Green Bay Packers' starting right end in their 3-4 base defense.
The Packers installed Wilson ahead of Worthy, a second-round draft choice, at the start of their off-season program and never found a reason to change.
"C.J.'s there," said Mike Trgovac, who coaches the defensive line. "C.J.'s been a very solid player. Just what you need out of an 'Okie' end."
Wilson, 6 feet 3 inches and 300 pounds, doesn't figure to have a role in the nickel and dime defenses.
His job will be to play either defensive end, control one or two gaps depending on the call and stop the run. When pass shows, his job is to shove the double team and be alert to quarterback scrambles.
"Listen, you don't have to be fancy in this defense," Trgovac said. "Everyone wants us to be these 3-techniques that rush up the field. Three-quarters of the time that's not what we do."
