Geez... that's all we need is him prissy-footing into the wedge and fumbling on kickoffs. If we call Reggie and apologize do you think he will come back to us?

I would bet he is, and don't discount it. They didn't say Morency would return punts and kick-offs...they said he was returning kicks from Kris Brown. I don't think they mentioned he was shagging punts. It is very common to see running backs return kick offs since you need a bit of a stronger runner there. I would probably guess that Buchanan would return punts and Morency or Hollings on the kick return team.

I thought Moses got picked up by the Bears. Actually, scratch that - I KNOW he got picked up by the Bears. I just don't know if they subsequently released him. I was glad to see him land somewhere though.

I was rather looking forward to Swinton returning kicks this year. I'd rathe rhave Moses back there than Hollings or Mathis. Morency ... meh ... dunno.

That's a shame. I always liked Moses, even though he was never going to break one, hehe.

FYI to everyone...

Buchannon is the teams primary punt returner and will field punts this Sunday. Mathis, Morency and Hollings are our kick-off guys according to a source. Since Mathis has the hammy problem Morency will take the kick return duties.

Swinton signed with Arizona. Who cut Moses to make room on the roster.

He was cut by the Bears (like Vinny stated), brought in by the Cardinals who cut him when we cut Swinton. Swinton is better than Moses.

I dont understand why they would have a starting CB retuning punts immediatly after playing defense, if he takes a big hit, we will suffer at 2 positions..I would have liked to have seen what D.Morgan could do as PR/KR

Was wondering what they would do if Mathis got hurt.
Where's Reggie!!!!!!! We need him back. 3 Td's(1 by kick-off return) and we let him go! Go figure!

Mathis is the #1 Kick returner (kick-offs only). Buchannon is the # 1 Punt returner.

I think he is talking about his history as a return man. He is tied with George Atkinson, Tim Brown, & Claude Gibson on the Raiders’ all-time list for punts returned for a touchdown (3 in 36 games).

Quote:
PRO: Fast, playmaking cover corner who can also return kicks…can boast seven touchdown returns (four INT, three punt) in 36 career games…has 11 career picks, averaging 29.6 yards per return…averages 11 yards on 72 career punt returns…acquired by the Texans in a trade with Oakland on 4/20/05 for two 2005 draft picks – a second-rounder (47th overall) and a third-rounder (73rd)…his three career punt returns for scores ties him for first (George Atkinson, Tim Brown, Claude Gibson) on the Raiders’ all-time list…his four career INT returns tie him for second (Dave Grayson, Lester Hayes, Rod Martin) on Oakland’s all-time list…originally drafted by the Raiders in the first round (17th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft.

I would just as soon see Mathis sit this one out and be 100% for the Steelers. I don't think Buffalo will get to kickoff that many times, anyway. As long as Morency holds on to the ball, I'll be happy.

Well take away anyone's biggest return and their average will look at about 19-20ish.
