    Scandrick is also a seasoned veteran.

    I like Beasley more than most players on this team. It is not due to great talent, but he is a fantastic role player. By that comment, I mean that there are very few quality role players on this team and I think more is needed. He iSight tied by size and talent, but he is dependable as a third down option. There seems to be a shortage of dependable role players on this team which makes me value him more than most players. He gets the most from his limited talent and that is better than than the very talented players with doesn't play up to their ability. Carter , Mo and past players such as Austin and even Hatcher would have benefitted if they played with Cole's effort.

    The current running backs on the roster may not allow for this strategy. This team needs a workhorse to compliment Demarco.

    Role players are rare these days in the NFL as most players need to be able to play special teams as well. Having a player only able to play a handful of offensive or defensive plays and no special team plays hurts the team. Beasley can return punts although that will be Harris's job as long as he's healthy. The fact that Beasley is on the 54 last year and will be this year shows you that he's a special player.

    I don't think that's quite what he meant when he said we need more role players on this team. I think he meant guys who are just solid in what they are asked to do in the offensive/defensive scheme they play, maybe not star players, but guys who are like glue guys, and are always where you expect them to be. Doesn't mean they can't play special teams, too.

    Beasley is more of a specialty player, i would call him. Like you said, can't really help on special teams, but is so important to the offense that his value on this roster is justified that way.

    I went by the definition of a role player.

    SO? He was that way from day one frankly. Seasoned has nothing to do with it.

    I think I know what you're trying to say, but in truth Scandrick is our most athletic corner and it's really not even close.

    That's exactly why some of us were a little concerned about Claiborne from the start.

    You mean, "a player who plays a role"?

    Perhaps -- I'm guessing that's what the staff had in mind when we got J.C. Copeland. We'll see whether he pans out or not.

    I think until we go back to having a FB blocking for the halfback at the point of attack..

    ..we will continue to not be dominant running the ball.

    If you ask me, its interesting lately to hear the talk about the team keeping one this year.

    I think they need it even with the improved OL.

    If you have the horses up front, everything starts working better. You then add a great lead blocker like Moose and everything starts working great. Is Copeland their Moose is the question. And can they stay healthy.....

    Questions abound for sure. They're trying to get Copeland to lose some of that excess weight. It should help his quickness. The competition between he and Clutts should serve to be beneficial for both. Whether the staff opts to use a FB is another question. There's may be an inclination to retain a full complement of RBs this year. That could conceivably impact their decision.

    Beasley, Bryant, and Williams all have similar speed. In no particular order here are their 40 times:

    4.40, 4.42, 4.45

    But without a doubt, Beasley is the quickest of the bunch. The kid can play anywhere and be effective.

    FYI: Beasley owns the 4.42 time.
