Nobody can seem to hold on to the number 2 cornerback job. Last week against the Packers, Tim Jennings was benched and replaced by Zackary Bowman. Bowman's performance against the Packers led to him being benched again in favor of Jennings.

The situation's a little worse for Bowman beyond a normal benching, as with his contract expiring after this season, the benching could be paving the way for Bowman to be off the team next season. The 2008 fifth-round pick led the team with six interceptions in 2009, but was benched last year in the first matchup against the Packers and Tim Jennings was given the reins.

Jennings is also operating with an expiring contract this season.

One last thing for you to chew on, from the article:

Since 2006, Tillman has paired with five regular starting cornerbacks: Nathan Vasher, Trumaine McBride, Graham, Bowman and Jennings.
