Case for: 7-year veteran with Jets and Seahawks; posted 1,140 total yards returned (punts and kickoffs) in 2012 with one touchdown for Seahawks; excellent on special teams in kick returning; returned five punts for 53 yards Aug. 29 against the Giants.
Case against: Has not shown that he can do much on offense as runner or pass catcher; has three catches and five rushes in preseason; 88 total yards returned in first three preseason games; had a lost fumble on a punt return against the Giants.
Berry’s take: Washington is a remarkable kick returner and a good option at running back on third down. But as training camp has gone on, he has seen fewer and fewer reps in the backfield. He's taking a step back to Shane Vereen and the emergence of LeGarrette Blount.
