    8 weeks is most of the rest of the season. I wonder if they will put him on IR?

    Cason wouldn't be a bad option for a kick returner if he is in shape. I really figured they would just have Elam do it...he didn't look bad on the one or two that he has handled.

    I always wondered what happened to him. The last thing I remember from him was the option play that he took to the house in one game.

    I say we go with Elam and Reeves... Reeves seems pretty fast.. and I thought I remember him returning a few times before.

    Cason was a nice player. Parcells always said he felt Cason was too small to be an every down RB, but he was small and quick. He had one game where he fumbled a couple of times and Parcells never used him much again. At the time we were hurting at RB (Eddie George/Troy Hambrick) and I personally thought the offense was so stagnant that it was worth risking an ocassional fumble to generate a little excitement.

    Cason may be able to serve the dual purpose of returning kickoffs and being a 3rd RB.

    Probably good to get him in the area at least.

    I do follow, but why bring a guy who is out of the spot? and well just give somone else from the team more chances to play? See my point :)

    I'd be okay with Cason... At least he has a lot of speed.

    I wonder if Swinton is still floating around out there -- if he's even still young enough and in shape, that is. Never understood why we got rid of him to keep Zuriel.

    He may be getting too old to have the burst he used to have, though.

    We are probably looking for fill the rb and kr spot at the same time. If a wr is going to be the kr we already have plenty of them.

    That guy is probably still in good enough shape to do it and also be the 3rd RB.

    Sherman is serving time for being a drug lord.

    BTW, william Green recently got cut and is available. don't know if he has a hsitory of kick returns, but he was a decent RB, but is a head/drug case.

    Ain't THAT the truth. He was awesome as a kick returner in his 2nd stint with the boys.

    And frankly, he could probably still get it done. ;)
