It should be Rossum and Sheets returning kicks.
I still haven't figured that out it's probably b/c he doesn't have a great 40 time or b/c he's kinda old. Last tiem I checked he was getting the job done.
Rossum was named the fastest man in the NFL at the 2004 and 2005 Pro Bowl. He ran the 40 in 4.15.
So no, I don't think he has any issue with speed.
I as waiting for that to come up.
He did take more than a few nasty hits and did miss some time. I like Nate Clements return ability and it is a nice change up to have him back there to keep coverage units on their heels but I remember the Sehorn injury. First time I'd seen someone walk off the field with that injury instead of writhing in pain on the ground. I don't want to see that happen to Nate being he is a longterm investment much less a rookie wr coming off injury. I like Delanie Walker and Arnaz Battle as back ups to Rossum.

You don't have your premier wide receiver as a kick returner.
