I'm assuming you're referring to his lockerroom issues...For now, I'm thinking he just needs a change of scenery, much like Corey Dillon did...I think if he acts up, Jon Hoke and Dom Capers will whip his *** into shape...If that doesn't work, he's gone in 2 years, so no big deal...If he doesn't develop into a good CB, he's still a game-breaking return man...

Reggie is a good solid pick up, who can contribute on Special Teams.

He was the most consistant Lions WR, sadly....this was probally because he was the most healthy of them.


But he runs pretty good routes, gets seperation, and usually makes the catch. He's solid not spectacular. Should be a great #4 option.

Going to miss him, first time I have said that about a Lions WR that has left these past few years.

yea then it sounds like swinton is exactly like JJ solid but not spectacular. and plus i dont think were lookin for a WR like swinton IMO im not sayin were set at WR just not him. so my point is JJ is solid but not spectacular but with buchanan signed who knows anymore

When I look back at the game against Jville and remember how short handed we were after no JJ, I am glad to see we have more capable people to help in this department.

Good point ET. We now have a couple of folks to handle kick duty. We looked BAD and very nervous in the kicking game in JVille.

if somehow we draft a RB in round 1.... JJ is definitely a goner given Davis would/could be put into KR duty also

im not to sure bout that...davis? he doesnt have break away speed and neither did JJ and he isnt that fast. he'd be a 3rd down bak and i think we'd have starling or somethin bak there if it wouldnt be swinton or buchanon

Try checking out DD's KR/PR stats in college--you'll find an SEC record.

Well, I think that is overstated around here quite a bit. Casserly made a comment about him contributing on 3rd downs and on special teams, but despite missing almost all of training camp they had him coming in on more than 3rd downs right from the 1st game of the season.

I dont think Buchanon is a return option unless he doesnt get a starting job. Swinton, eh i have never really liked him. Hes a grinder just is a little taller than JJ. JJ will probably beat him out and though he never returns the big one he gives us better than avg starting field position on kickoffs. Rarely fumbles. Swinton.. well on the cowboys he was hot and cold moses seems like he gives us better starting field position... do we have statistics on that for return men?
