He's getting older and his safety skills are much more valuable.

And I actually like what little I saw out of trindon at wr last pre season. He's always going to have limitations but he has what a lot of other players don't. Tremendous speed.

The only way trindon makes the team is if he's beasting on special teams though.
First, how many of our kick returners have ever gotten hurt returning kicks? And muscle tears/strains don't count - that could happen running fly patterns (see Andre Johnson - twice). I only recall Jerome Mathis (or was in Moses) who kept getting nicked up constantly.

Second, Manning got hurt while picking off Matt Hasselbeck during the first Tenn. game. So injuries can happen any time at any spot. All the more reason not to spend a roster spot on a one-trick pony.

I ain't saying cut him outright. Hoth-Boy gets what I'm saying he's got to be able to do more than just be a KR. And even Dante Hall played a decent WR. Not to mention Holliday has never shown anything close to the "Human Joystick" in terms of moves.
