I am not saying this guy couldn't be a great return man, but I do not see him being another Devin Hester. Hester has runs a 40 around the 4.35 range, and Robinson is about a 4.5 type of guy.

Devin Hester is bordering on being a hall of famer after the last two years. It's a bit fruitless to look for the same kind of guy. We might find another Micheal Lewis or something comparable, which would be more than serviceable. But Devin Hester is a unique player in this league.

Yes I understand he was a practice squad guy in Cincy. However, I feel getting back to Louisiana will rejuvenate him. Getting some red beans and rice in your system can work wonders! I am not just talking intestinal.

Payton is always preaching that he wants many of his players to play special teams so that we can be a deeper team. Well, Bush needs to step it up and contribute in other ways.
Unfortunately, side to side stutter stepping won't get you far in the return game either... and it won't matter who is back there unless we're blocking. Our returns last year were weak for the most part. Not a TD since Bush against Tampa. Wizzeak!!

@ Missle and Sapper: You two are the biggest homers ever. I just wanted to get that off my chest.

About the return man: Leodis McKelvin is the real deal. First Team AA for returns, led the nation in return yards and he's got shut-down man-to-man corner back potential.

He is from Troy, though. I hope that's not too small of a school.

... does he come with the same Bear blocking scheme and execution that Hester benefits from?

Great return guys find openings when it seems there are none. It takes a special talent to be a great one....maybe thats why they call it SPECIAL TEAMS. Kevin Robinson has that special talent.
