In two seasons A.J. Terrell has made a name for himself in the NFL, and although he has been a part of the Falcons roster for three years, this season he is finally having the breakout year that many people thought he would have.

At age 28, A.J. Terrell is the NFL’s best red-zone cornerback, per BACON updating his numbers from last season to this one with the Jets defense he did his best to try and stop DeAndre Hopkins for their week 4 matchup.
Over the first 4 weeks, which is a minimal amount of games to judge a cornerback with, Terrell is leading all cornerbacks in Redzone success rate, limiting opposing receivers to an unsustainable 36% success rate, while only allowing 5 completions all season long in the Redzone. That translates to an astounding 1.50 points allowed per snap in the red zone.
