What's this about the newly re-signed Tarell Brown displacing Nate Clements on a one-game basis because he matches up better against the Colts' receivers?

A few thoughts that come to mind:
This one is a bit baffling from this angle and I don't have enough information to say anything definitive. Yes, Clements has been inconsistent, but he's still a good talent and a hard worker and a good teammate, by all accounts. We haven't seen the last of him as a starting corner in the NFL.
