That is probably about right for him. A team could do much worse than spend a 5th on him. The excitement when he goes back for a punt return reminds me of Deion. He could take any kick all the way.
This is a team who is battling several major injuries to
key players including Pro Bowl talents like Lee, Austin, Jenkins, Murray,
Carter and Ratliff. Other key starters missing include Costa, Smith, Church and
Coleman. That is 11 key players - that's half the starting lineup. Yet we still went 8-8.
