Keo is here because he's wade's guy. They picked him. Now wade has other guys and at some point hell have to face the truth about the player he picked or he'll start to lose players with more talent potentially.
As far as not cutting a st captain...yeah they would. He's not the best player on special teams and never was. You think if keo is voted special teams captain every year that'll keep him from ever being cut?
Nolan was a vet that they had some hope for, but didn't pan out.
They gave him another chance, but didn't like what they saw.
I said "doubtful" that they cut the ST captain, not "definite".
Keo still has to show that he makes improvement, and so far, it seems that he did in practice such that they put him in there, and he responded well in the game.
Wade could have find a vet in the off-season, but he didn't.
A bit player would earn a minimum vet salary and doesn't break the bank.
They didn't keep Demps who has had plenty of experience.
Wade also could have kept Alan Ball who had played safety with the Cowboys.
He's a Wade's guy, too.
