Ok, let's look at something.
The Seahawks just traded for Percy Harvin, who's a pretty damn good KR in addition to a WR.
A major problem we had all last season was KR coverage. It's one of the biggest reasons why we lost the Super Bowl when Jacoby Jones went the length of the field to start the 3rd qtr (I don't care about the hold or not, Miller wasn't out of position like other players were).
Had we not been stupid and trade Constanzo and Colin Jones, I doubt Jones returns that kick.
We need to shore up our KR coverage since Seattle got Harvin or we'll be seeing him do what Jones did to us.
In other words, this was a huge move to keep up with Seattle.
