THE BEST Aaron Wiliams, Texas Size: 6-0, 204. 40-time: 4.55 Projected round: 1-2 Mayock: "He can play corner, but ultimately, I think his best position is going to be inside. In today's NFL of multiple-receiver sets and pass-first offenses, I think you're going to see more and more free safeties who look like corners. Williams reminds me a little bit of the kid out of Ohio State that the Saints drafted a couple of years ago, Malcolm Jenkins. He was kind of a borderline first-round corner, but when they kicked the kid inside, he had a heckuva year last year.

WHY DO the Roosevelt Boulevard pedestrians jaywalk and cross against the red light? Not everybody speeds and weaves in and out on the Boulevard. I've had to slam on the brakes many times while going the posted limit, with a green light. Some pedestrians believe they don't have to obey traffic signals, but the laws for drivers and pedestrians should be equally enforced. Howard Kieffer, Philadelphia

PGW spokesman Doug Oliver's attempt to minimize public concerns about the proposed Port Richmond LNG terminal, saying, "the knee-jerk reaction is to focus on safety, or terrorism, on the worst-case scenario" is at best a poor choice of words and at worst an indication that PGW is putting dollars before safety. Everyone's focus, especially PGW's, should be on safety, terrorism and the worst-case scenario, and doing so should not be demeaned as "knee-jerk.

The Eagles claimed safety Brett Johnson off waivers from the Buffalo Bills on Monday. The 6-foot-1, 194-pounder was signed as a rookie free agent from California by the Bills following the 2010 draft but was released on June 25. A two-year starter at free safety, the 23-year-old Johnson finished his collegiate career with 107 tackles and three interceptions. In 2009, Johnson recorded a career-high 52 tackles to lead all Bears defensive backs. The Henderson, Nev., native was a college teammate of Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson at Cal.

RE WARREN M. Hern's op-ed ("Am I a partial-birth abortion outlaw?" Oct. 28): Not only am I taken aback by the graphic description and matter-of-fact way he describes this procedure, but also by the complete lack of concern for his own safety. I have to admit that my very first thought after reading this article was that someone is going to kill this man. As a Roman Catholic, I most certainly do not agree with Dr. Hern's practices, but I also do not believe that two wrongs make a right.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman says fighting is part of hockey and believes some people have been "running off a little too fast on this topic. " "My view on fighting hasn't changed," Bettman told the Canadian Press yesterday. "We've never taken active steps or considered eliminating fighting from the game. "I've always taken the view that it's a part of the game and it rises and lowers based on what the game dictates. " While Bettman seemed OK with the game's current stand on fighting, he's concerned about the larger safety issues.

THE PERCEPTION that we will be safer from terrorists under Bush than Kerry is preposterous. We already have the world's most powerful military, yet it did not prevent the 9/11 attacks. As John Kerry said, "Help is on the way. " But I hope that enough people will accept that help. Mortgaging away the future of our children, failing to protect the environment, reducing the number of emergency workers, off-shoring jobs and reducing funding for successful education programs is a poor demonstration of family values.

The head coach keeps repeating that he's happy with his safeties. That's like saying he's happy to see the sun rise, even though the day that follows might be downright dreadful. Rich Kotite's summertime credo has been "Don't Worry, Be Happy. " While everyone else, including his defensive coaches, is concerned about a noticeable lack of depth, lack of chemistry, lack of hitters and, heck, lack of starters at this point, Kotite says he's happy. The Real Season opens in two weeks and Kotite is happy, even though Rich Miano is the only safety who knows what he's doing on every play right now. The Eagles' projected Opening Day starting safeties are Miano and strong safety William Frizzell, who has started 12 games, mostly in emergencies, in nine years.

PITTSBURGH - During Billy Davis' three seasons as the Eagles' defensive coordinator, he seldom, if ever, mentioned the safety position and stopping the run in the same sentence. In his two-gap, 3-4 scheme, safeties were quasi-cornerbacks with limited run responsibilities. Tackling was way down their list of priorities. The way getting coffee is for a Fortune 500 CEO. Yes, Malcolm Jenkins had a team-high 104 tackles last season. But about half of those were on guys Byron Maxwell and Mychal Kendricks missed.

Malcolm Jenkins completed his best season in the NFL by earning a Pro Bowl trip as a safety in 2015, except Jenkins pointed out that his production came because he was not always the safety. Jenkins moved to slot cornerback when the Eagles played nickel defense last season, allowing him to thrive in a role he feels he plays best. Now he is entering his eighth season in the NFL in a new scheme, but he's hoping it includes the responsibilities he held last season. "My best years in this league since I stepped in, playing the slot has been my most productive," Jenkins said.

He watched his nephew, 11-year-old Christopher Alvarez, whose friends call him Speedy, huddle around Lee Taggart, head coach of the Juniata Thundercats, a Pop Warner team that calls Piccoli Playground home. When Figueroa was younger, he attended Edison High School, two miles from the playground where his nephew now practices. Figueroa thinks football is a rite of passage, a way to turn boys into men. "Football is like life," he said.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission staff is tackling a very interesting problem. The National Floor Safety Institute has petitioned it to require floor covering manufacturers to label their products to indicate that there is a possibility of slips and falls that could result in injury. "Slips and falls are one of the leading causes of injuries, of which 55 percent are caused by unsafe floors," said the institute president, Russ Kendzior. "However, when it comes to buying a floor, most consumers are in the dark and assume all floors are safe, only to find out that they are not once they are injured," he said.

Jim Schwartz can pick apart most of the players on his defense for inconsistencies or areas in which they must improve, but the Eagles' defensive coordinator exempted his two starting safeties from such gripes. Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod represent the strength of the Eagles defense and what the team believes can be one of the NFL's best safety combinations. "I have been complimentary to the safeties for good reason," Schwartz said. "Those guys are good players. They come to work every day. They're a great example to the secondary on how to be a pro, how to communicate, how to be in the right spots.

NEWPORT, R.I. - It is not a surprising decision, but it is one that will have a big impact on Temple's defense. In the spring, Temple football coach Matt Rhule suggested that junior Sean Chandler could be moving from cornerback to safety. On Monday, Rhule confirmed that Chandler, a standout at Camden High, is indeed moving to safety. The reason for the move is so Chandler's ball hawking skills can be displayed over the entire field instead of just one area while playing cornerback.

Now that the presidential race is truly on, anyone who cares about America's foreign policy and national security has no option but to vote for Hillary Clinton. The most urgent reason is the need to prevent a mercurial, ill-informed hothead from ever having his hand on the nuclear button. The second reason is that Clinton has a particular skill set that suits these unstable times. Donald Trump has shown over and over that he doesn't have the temperament to be commander-in-chief.
