I think JJ will stay.. as well as starling. its not that hard to imagine that we would keep 6 wide receivers in this situation. Though I dont think we will go with 1 less TE... not after the injuries we have had at that position. If anything I think we may cut down at LB.. since we have a decent amount of depth there.. or possibly at CB.

What id really like to see.. if we are gonna keep JJ as a return specialist.. teach him a different position! There has to be something that a guy that size, with that kind of talent can do. Can he tackle? try him at strong saftey and throw him in there on rushing downs... give him a shot as a nickle corner or heck.. try him at outside linebacker (lol).. maybe that shiftyness will get him around the LT. I remember when I played ball in highschool.. there was a guy.. he was about 6'5" and about 125 pounds soaking wet with bricks in his pocket... but he could just slide right by those o-linemen and get to that QB.

Dont get me wrong.. I am not saying that JJ has some hidden potential as a huge playmaker at outside linebacker or something.. im just saying that if we are gonna keep him as our KR & PR.. then try him everywhere and make sure he doesnt have potential to actually add some depth to the roster at a different spot.. or at least potential as a situational rusher or HB or something. Hell.. can he throw? maybe he can take the 3rd QB spot and we can get rid of butterfinger banks.
