Akwasi Owusu-Ansah said he was asked to try receiver, so he has switched numbers and switched positions.
Owusu-Ansah is wearing No. 11 and trying his hand at offense on the scout team. Owusu-Ansah, a fourth-round pick in 2010, switched from cornerback to safety before last season. He made the active roster before going on injured reserve with an ankle injury in October. Owusu-Ansah was released out of training camp this year, but he was re-signed to the practice squad.
"They asked me to play receiver," Owusu-Ansah said. "They said, 'We kind of like you at receiver.' It's mostly scout team. ...I'll do whatever they ask me to do."
