Earl Thomas to return punts for Seattle

Why does everyone think Harvin will be returning punts? PR and KR are totally different animals which is why you usually see those jobs split between different players.

Just his speed and strength alone would put fear into offenses. I hope Tomsula/Fangio can really develop this guy's techniques. Let him bull rush from the outside like Aldon rushing Jonathan Martin... it isn't far fetched to think he could at least do that, is it?

you got that right

Honestly if he is going to make the roster this year special teams contribution would be a huge feather in his cap. We usually keep one or two that have that nutjob mentality to go in there and blow up a returner.
It could be a career ender like Jason Seahorn.

He was a really talented guy that - that injury - really took it's toll on his speed. He never really had top end speed, but he had great quickness and instincts. That injury took out the last of whatever speed he had left. Good guy, too bad.

Ed Reed returned punts in the most important games, he was sure-handed.

And IMO the best safety of all time.

There has been a lot of good safties, but yeah, he always did a number on us, I think, whenever we play the Ravens back then.

Yeah - BUT marrying Angie Harmon is a great consolation prize.

Ed Reed was lucky he didn't get injured. Exactly because he was so good he shouldn't have been at risk returning punts.

Wow, you're an idiot. Is he great at throwing 50 yard fade routes too? Can he play Nose Tackle as well?
