i guess the punt return is important though.
Morgan did a good job with that but i guess its time to groom some young guys

Here's a thought, maybe the FO doesn't think nance is as good as alot of people in here think he is.

The man will be on our roster...

Those second guessing... Don't worry, he is a GREAT returner and he will make a solid 3/4

I like this pick too... great return man and a better all-around receiver than Bloom.

some of ya'll might be looking to much into this pick, right when i saw his speed time i knew he wasn't being brought in to play on offense, he is being brought here to return punts which is great. this is a great pick and will not be another gibson, cause gibson was being looked at to kinda replace burress, all this kid is being brought in is to return punts and possibly kickoffs

As soon as I saw this dude I remembered his 87-yard punt return against PSU in the Orange Bowl. Did he score though? I'd like to say that he did, but details are somewhat hazy due to the Troegenator Doublebock I imbibed before, during, and after that game.

edit: what the hell ever happened to Gibson? Did he drift to any other teams?

edit again: He was picked up by the Dolphins.
