Former St. Louis Rams cornerback Justin King offered some comparisons between Sam Bradford and Andrew Luck, the quarterback on King's current team in Indianapolis, on Monday. The internet, as it is wont to do, went crazy as you can see here and with a Twitter search on the whole thing.
King offered up a defense of his comments later in the day on Monday.
Who did I criticize??..I said I saw a rookie of the year in action..(shrugs)— Justin King (@theking1) August 6, 2012
Pretty sure I praised Sammy B...whatever tho— Justin King (@theking1) August 6, 2012
So everyone believes tweets as truth..— Justin King (@theking1) August 7, 2012
King could go face-to-face with Sam Bradford, at least for the series or two that the Rams' QB plays on Sunday. King is in the running for one of two starting cornerback jobs with the Colts ... too bad Andrew Luck can't play corner too.
DC Greg Manusky said Justin King has taken the lead at No. 2 CB because of his knowledge of the scheme.— George Bremer (@gmbremer) August 2, 2012
The Rams and the Colts play on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. Central.
