Starling may have not faced "final cut" guys yet, but he's still learning the position and who's to say that he doesn't have the potential to be at least an OK return man?
I'd rather keep an OK return man who can also be a top-flight gunner, and an extra wideout if we need him.
Great points. Not to mention that he can likely be developed to fill the 4th receiver slot next year when Bradford is gone. The way CC was talking about him last night, he seems likely to make the team. This likely means good bye to JJ. If they only keep 5 receivers, Sloan Thomas will likely be the one put on the practice squad. I still don't think Starling would clear waivers. Thomas hasn't had many opportunities so far, and he should be under the radar. Maybe they had it planned that way, who knows.
