He had just finished playing 65 of the Dolphins' 66 defensive snaps at three different positions. He spent time at four different positions in practice that week -- outside cornerback, slot cornerback, free safety and strong safety -- and he played just about all of them Sunday.http://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post ... nn-mathieu
