AAF: 5 standouts the Houston Texans should watch now
By Avery Duncan
Jamar Summers, CB, Birmingham Iron
Week 3 stats: 3 tackles, 4 pass deflections, 1 interception
Surprise, Jamar Summers of the Brimingham Iron is on this list for a third week in a row and for good reason. I swear I’m not recycling material on the cornerback as Summers has been that good over the course of the young AAF season. He has shown that off his instincts, and a physical play on the boundary. Frankly, I’m running out of compliments for his game, but he is deserving of being on this list and should be on the radar of the Houston Texans.
Statistically, Summers actually had one of his worst weeks in the AAF in Week 3. Per Pro Football Focus, Summers allowed only two receptions for 36 yards and no touchdowns on seven targets against the Atlanta Legends. He also had a nice interception, but that was more of a poor read by Matt Simms of Atlanta.
According to Pro Football Focus, Summers has allowed a 0.0 passer rating when targeted through the season, so it doesn’t get much better than that.
During Week 3, Summers allowed an 8.9 pass rating. It’s likely that the 6-foot corner will see some interest in the NFL for various teams and the Texans should be one of the first to call the 23-year-old cornerback for how he has played thus far in the AAF.
