If you factor in Wheaton, Miller and Moore, we're running out of snaps here.
I'm still liking DHB to be the return man. I know he has had drop issues, but that 4.23 speed is intriguing.
I don't know. Two back sets from the shotgun could be intriguing with another pass capable back. I agree I wouldn't look for anyone to make a major impact on offense, but I still say there's a role for a dynamic playmaker.
I don't buy it. Could he be? Sure. Is there any reason to believe it? No. We're talking about a guy who didn't play special teams for the first time ever
until December of last year. That's including high school and college. Somebody mentioned before he was a return man in college, but I haven't been able to find any stats on that. Is he on the list? Absolutely. But it's loony to put all our eggs in that basket.
