Say what? It sounds like things are not going so well at the other corner as Gase is having to push them. One thing, by all accounts, McTyler has improved over last year.

CB Torry McTyer had his fourth day going with the starters (Cordrea Tankersley had had three days and Tony Lippett one day). Coach Adam Gase said McTyer, who appears to be leading the search for the starter opposite Xavien Howard, will be there until someone takes the job.

Cornerback Torry McTyer opened with the starters for the second consecutive day and the fourth time in eight practices and has emerged as the slight leader in the battle with Cordrea Tankersley and Tony Lippett for the starting job opposite Xavien Howard.

Preseason games will go a long way toward determining the starter.

Gase said McTyer, undrafted in 2017 out of UNLV, has been the best of those cornerbacks, aside from Howard, who might have been Miami’s best playersthrough eight days of camp.

At cornerback, Gase said who gets first team reps “might be who had the best day the day before.”

I thought Lippett would eventually earn that spot at the beginning of camp.

He may yet. We appear to either have 5 starting caliber Cbs (X, Lippett, Tank, McTyer, McCain) or we have 1. Let's hope it's the former.

I think he is still struggling due to last year's Achilles injury. He is definitely not 100%.

Interesting. While McTyler is playing well, this could also be to push Tankersley and Lippett whom they really want to start. There are a lot of mind games being played in the offseason to get the best out of a player.
