Vols' Dallas could be moving from WR to cornerback

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - After moving from defensive back to receiver last season, Tennessee's Vincent Dallas could be returning to the secondary.

Dallas played cornerback in Monday morning's practice session. Defensive coordinator John Jancek said afterward that "we're trying to develop some depth at the position and Vincent has some experience there, so we're taking a look at that." Tennessee head coach Butch Jones wasn't available to the media.

Dallas arrived at Tennessee as a receiver but spent last year's training camp in the secondary. He returned to receiver during the 2012 season and caught nine passes for 149 yards and a touchdown.

Tennessee lacked depth at cornerback even before an injury to Riyahd Jones kept him out of Monday morning's practice. Freshman cornerback Cameron Sutton has been getting first-team reps.
