Smart move, love his game but that's a big cap hit for a role player. Would like to see him getting more handoffs.

moving someone else?
I thought his reduced role at the end of the year was a sign we had moved on

I see him more of a special teams return type of guy. Also coming in after PT or Ingram have bruised up the line run right freaking past them.
However we got this guy named Drew Brees that throws for 330+ yards per game.

I like it. I know some folks seem eager to cut him loose. I'm not one of them.

he was not productive as a returner at all this year: low averages, misplayed a couple of punts in the second Carolina game, even had an uncharacteristic fumble
I love having him back at a discount, but he need to be more involved in the rotation

I was a fan of cutting him lose with his current cap hit, but happy to see him stay at a reduced amount of cap...

Would you prefer to have Patrick Peterson returning for us?
