Default New Steeler Return Guy

Here is footage of a SICK punt return TD by first team All American and new Pittsburgh Steeler Joe Burnett in the Conference USA title game two seasons ago. Burnett will be a HUGE new dynamic to our return game!!

Eh, apparently he's a punt returning guru, but he looked a bit sluggish in that video to be honest . But yeah, he should be good. Isnt Wallace good at Kick returns?

I said it in a previous post and I'll say it again, Burnett is my favorite pick and he will be a great nickel corner and fantastic return man. He was tops in C-USA in interceptions and in top 10 of NCAA in punt and kick return yards.

You forgot Keiwan Ratliff as a kick returner too.

I think Stephan Logan will have a hard time making the team. Burnett might replace Madison, Lewis replaces McFadden and Ratliff might be kept on the roster in place of a 7th D lineman. Anyways, we got return guys!!!

i agree. it looked like he was running in mud. if he was drafted for returning punts then i think he will be cut or perhaps placed on the practice squad.

I just hope our return game is alot better this year no matter who is returning the ball for us. We just need to get better field position.
