Allen Rossum Released [Update 11/01]

Rossum is still fast like some of you already pointed out, but he's getting old. We need to address this issue in the draft and get some fresh young legs. There are plenty of really really fast guys in college that would be better suited for our young team.

He didn't get any practice returning punts or kicks in training camp so what makes you think they would put him in a game as a PR all of a sudden?

Put Rossum back on the field, he is our best return man by far.

For something like PR, I think I rather have a vet who has done it before though I am interested in seeing Sheets return kickoffs.

Arnaz Battle is worse though because he can't even fair catch the ball. This is a major problem for us right now, the PR posistion.

Should we call the Browns about Cribbs?

I think the Bills have Roscoe Parrish on the block.

Wonder what it would take to get him? I dont know much about him other than he is a pretty good KR/PR

He has sure hands, and thats what we need.......NO TURNOVERS. You cant expect him to break one each and every game. I agree that he's not as formidable as years past, but he's still a quality player at his position.

Battle fumbled twice today...........

The problem with Rossum is you can waist a roster spot on Punt/Kick return specialist that isn't very good.

As for Battle, he hasn't had the entire off season, training camp, and first 3 weeks of the season practicing as a punt returner. He will be better next week.

haha waist. do you mean waste?
Battle 3 returns for a total of 3 yards

Bring back Rossum. I would rather have him active than J. Hill who isn't going to get on the field with Raye using 3 WRs and V. Davis in a 4 wide out set.
rossum is sure handed. battle muffed 2 kicks. rossum needs to be back there period
