Default Revamped Return Game

If Reggie Swinton can make this team returning kicks and as the last WR then it puts pressure on guys like Armstrong and Starling for a roster spot. Click the link for the full article.

Special someone
By Kris Krikes

Head coach Dom Capers has gained a reputation for being one of the most detail-oriented coaches in the NFL. Nowhere is that more evident than on special teams. The Texans failed to score a touchdown on a kickoff or punt return last season. As a result, Capers decided to look elsewhere for help.

In May, the team released two-year return man J.J. Moses and added Phillip Buchanon from the Oakland Raiders, Reggie Swinton from the Detroit Lions and fourth-round draft pick Jerome Mathis to the mix.

Compared to the offensive and defensive units, special teams get relatively little playing time so it's important they make big plays out of every opportunity.

It takes a special breed of player to be successful on special teams. Fortunately for the Texans, they don’t have to look hard for that special someone to return the ball this season. “I like our competitive situation,” Capers said of the team’s return prospects. “We’ve got three very capable people that are all at different stages in their careers.

“Phillip Buchanon was an outstanding returner for the Raiders. Reggie Swinton has done it (return) with success in the league and we think Jerome Mathis has a future of doing it, though he hasn’t done it yet.”

Yeah, we better break at least 1 return TD this season! I just hope we dont have Buchannon returning kicks and punts because I dont want to take the risk of him getting hurt. Mathis and Swinton should do great things for us

It's a pretty good indication of the depth we finally have at receiver if a guy with great hands like Armstrong is pressured to make the team. I think I lot of teams would like to have him.
