he's a decent special teamer

That's unfortunate... I mean that they waived Hunter. I was really looking for great things from him in the future, but I guess his injury hasn't healed as well as they had hoped.

Strange re-signing. A special teams gunner over anything else?

|Mitch| 04-16-2012 06:26 PM

and depth for Sproles in the return game

I doubt they're finished signing folks. We need special teamers too, and he's probably an above average STer.

Besides, he'll probably struggle to make the team.

Yeah you're right. With limited draft picks and cap space I suppose bringing back a proven special teams stud for what I would imagine is a very minimum one year contract is probably the smart move. Hopefully Joe Morgan takes his spot though as the back-up return man next year though.

Wow! Reggie Roby! I guess it is to put a little pressure on Morstead. But, I thought he passed back in 2005 or 2006.
