PHILADELPHIA -- Bryant McFadden was supposed to be involved in a fight for one of the cornerback positions, and he is. Just not the one he expected.
Instead of battling veteran Deshea Townsend for the starting spot at right cornerback, McFadden suddenly finds himself fighting with Ricardo Colclough to keep his spot as the No. 3 corner in the Steelers' defense.
In one of the more curious maneuvers of training camp, McFadden has gone from being the team's nickel back and a cornerback with starting potential to splitting time with Colclough, a former No. 2 draft choice in 2004 who hasn't been one of the six defensive backs in most of the team's dime defensive packages
