Too bad there isn't a "Better than what I've seen up to this point" option.

For the last time, HE'S NOT A CORNER!!!

He's a return specialist that went to a pro bowl in '05. He a definite upgrade in the return game. The Steelers won't rely on his cover skills.

I believe people will be singing a different tune shortly.

i'll just copy/paste what I posed in the other thread:

Bringing a guy onto the roster who is a pure returner (he wont be seeing the field as a DB) had better play at an elite level.

I don't think that having Wilson as a returner is a bad thing at all - most seem to have him at No.4 on the WR depth chart, and despite the constant rumors, I don't think we'll see a great deal of 4-wide this year.

It would therefore help if your No.4 guy contributed in some other way.

The question mark, I suppose, is Reid - to be still on the roster he must provide something at WR - because I don't think many teams have enough quality depth in their 53 to spend two roster spots on specialist returners.

We'll see, I guess.

ps. Let the record show that I wasn't one of the two people (up to this point) who took the opportunity to vote for option#4
