Won't have much room for error. But being an NFL Europe player, he might stick around longer because of his roster exemption.
Will enter camp with a slight advantage. Has a strong leg, but let's see what happens when the lights come on.
Ditto here. Flinn is looking to become one of, if not the tallest punter (6-5) in the NFL.
One of the more consistent snappers in the league. He even contributed on the offense last year, catching two TDs on the goal line.
Return Specialists [View Full Quote]
Zuriel Smith: Added a few pounds to his upper body. If he can improve his play at receiver, he'll have a better chance of returning kicks.
Patrick Crayton: Did everything in college, so he has return experience. He'll be one of the first players to get a shot.
Nate Jones: Drafted more for his return skills than his play at corner. Expect him to get plenty of looks on both kickoff and punts.
ReShard Lee: Played well last year before an injury ended his chances. Competing for backup RB spot, but could boost his chances with returns.
Aveion Cason: Coming back from ACL surgery last December. He's one of the fastest players on the team. Returned five kickoffs (81 yards) last year.
Julius Jones: If he's splitting carries, why not throw him back on kickoff return? It's a good way to see his open-field running ability.
Terence Newman: Might we finally see him drift back on punt returns? No one has more talent. Yet, the injury risk might be too much to take.
(Fill In The Blank): Who knows? Who is going to be this year's Reggie Swinton and just emerge from the unknown? Seems to happen every year.
yeah, I had a problem copy/pasting that part of it.
