New cornerback Leigh Bodden, acquired with a third-round draft pick from the Cleveland Browns for Shaun Rogers, says he's excited about coming to the Detroit Lions because of the talent he'll be playing with. Maybe he's confusing them with a different Detroit Lions team. Maybe not. But the 26-year-old corner says he's aiming to top his career-high six interceptions with 10 picks.There's also audio of the interview there at the link. Discuss.
"My goal is 10," he tells Stoney, on WDFN-AM Detroit. "My goal is set high. I'd like to bring that to this team, and help in any way I can."
Like most cornerbacks, Bodden doesn't lack for confidence. He thinks he can bring all the skills a Tampa 2 corner needs, and then some.
"The Tampa 2 requires that the corners come up and be aggressive with the wide receivers," he says, "and I can do that, and I can also be the cover guy. I've covered some of the best, and I've done it well. So I plan on continuing that here in Detroit."
