  • If Wilson is THE RB...

    as in the starting RB, would you still want him returning kicks? tough debate. I personally would lean towards saying no, simply because it's so high risk when they guy is your starting running back. Flip side, is the avg starting field position improves drastically and the potential to break one at any moment.

    Part II: who returns those kicks if he doesn't?

    Part III: Even if Wilson is #-2 to Brown, would you still risk him on KO returns, given how valuable having two backs has been for us during Tom's time here

    I see WR/RB still being a need in 5th-7th, but just make sure the guy can return....Antonio brown/Johnny Knox type

      Yes, I would "risk" him. How often do you actually see returners get hurt?

            Wes Welker returned punts then played on offense.

              Yeah and even though this is a whole new team since that time, I think it is burned enough on the psyche of the Mara's to never have that happen again. I think Wilson goes to full time running back and the torch gets passed to Hosley or someone else.

                From my brain to your keyboard. I think his name alone makes the point.

                    If he is the starter he won't be returning kicks.

                    Guess it's Jernigan time. Or Scott takes that role.

                      Pretty much this...

                        This is also my guess.

                          I could see Jerrigan or Hixon. I definitely don't think we risk having our #1 and #2 RBs taking the kicks.
                          Assign infractions here.

                              Pretty interesting. Just got this off a quick google search.

                              David Wilson - 40 yard dash time: 4.49 seconds
                              Domenik Hixon - 40 yard dash time: 4.48 seconds

                              Even I would of put my money on Wilson being faster.
