Draft Scout Justin Bethel News
09/11/17 - CB Justin Bethel started Sunday's game at Detroit with an 82-yard interception return for a touchdown, but in the fourth quarter, he allowed two touchdown receptions to rookie Kenny Golladay.
"I think we did a lot of good things in the first three quarters," Bethel said. "At the end there, the last two series, we just couldn't keep them out of the end zone. Me personally, I know what I gave up in those last two series. There were three plays that I know. ... I think we just didn't finish how we should've."
09/10/17 - CB Justin Bethel scored on an 82-yard interception return in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
08/29/17 - CB Justin Bethel knows that being named the starting right cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson wasn't the hard part. It's what's going to happen when the regular season starts and teams keep throwing his way because they'd rather avoid the All-Pro Peterson.
"You call it getting picked on," Bethel said. "I call it a chance to make plays. I'm definitely excited. I think it's going to be a good year. I think it's going to be a good year for the whole secondary."
Peterson said Bethel now has a chance to become an elite defensive back.
"It's all about getting the game experience under his belt, making those plays and grow that confidence in himself," Peterson said. "He's going to have a lot of opportunity. We'll see what he does with it."
08/01/17 - CB Justin Bethel, who wasn't expected to return to practice until Monday, was a full participant on Tuesday and wore a brace on his hyperextended knee. "I knew he'd be back. He wanted to come back sooner," coach Bruce Arians said. "That was great to see him out there today. He was flying around, he was full speed."
01/04/17 - CB Justin Bethel was limited for most of the season because of a painful foot injury that required surgery in the offseason and never quite healed. It cost him a shot at winning a starting corner job opposite Patrick Peterson and it prevented him from earning his fourth Pro Bowl selection as a special-teamer. Bethel, though, found success during the team's final two games as a slot cornerback, a position coach Bruce Arians said could be ideal for Bethel moving forward.
"I think Justin found his spot inside," Arians said. "He played really well in the nickel and we'll have to see if we can create a nickel or dime situation. He's done it in the past when Tyrann Mathieu is the nickel and he's had tight ends or somebody else."
