    Devin hester wants a fresh start

    Should BB trade for him? be nice to have a good KO  and punt returner.

    perhaps the best KR/PR in history

    Would certainly help in the return game, but I'm not sure we need him for that... Edelman is a great PR, and Demps may solve the KR issues.

    He doesn't do anything to help our WR situation. Guy has never been a dependable WR... soft, not great hands, and despite his speed he's never been a big-time deep-threat like Mike Wallace or DeSean Jackson.

    dude. Demps is 5'7 and a running back. he would get killed on KO's

    there are many tiny kr in the league. always have been. ever heard of trindon holliday? you may have seen him in the playoffs return a punt and a kick for td.

    while short, demps is not small either.

    Plenty of RBs and small guys returning kicks.  Demps returned kicks at Florida, too.  Don't think size is an issue.  Speed is the key.

    Demps is the man for the job, Hester is a wasted roster spot.

    guys to be honest, aren't you tried of the hobbits we've been using for the past few years? I don't want a bunch of paul bunyans, but fk, we need to beef up with our players, speed is great, but with speed comes monsterous hitting that inflicts injuries, if small guys don't have durable bodies the end result  is IR

    Woody is the smallest guy on our team and he has been fairly durable.

    Demps and Edelman will do just fine. No need for Hester, he can't run routes either so he probably wouldn't work out in this offense

    As mentioned, Demps on KR while Edelman returns Punts.

    I'd like some size at WR and RB (though Ridley is fine), but I'm okay with a small kick returner. At 5-11, 190, Hester isn't huge himself.

    Glad to see that the majority of posters on this board are intelligent, rational people. Great comments on this thread (a few outliers notwithstanding).

    i agree about Sproles. He's damn good. I'm not saying I want Hester, just throwing it out for discussion. keep in mind Demps got injured before the season even started. and yeah hester is not much bigger, but he has a great history of returning

    edelman has done a great job on punt returns too, but every year he gets hurt.

    Sure, he'd be great, much like Dillon was for us.   But I doubt BB focuses too much on RBs this year.  Too many other holes to fill.  I'm hoping he gets us some size at corner, WR, safety, and defensive tackle first . . .
