The real problem for great return guys now is that they just don’t get the opportunities that the Hesters got. KO go thru the endzone pretty much at will. Punters are getting better at angles and hang time. If you can’t play effectively at a normal position you’re not mich value anymore. I loved Agnew cuz I thought he’d develope into at least a nickle plus the return guy. Not sure I see that anymore
I actually have wondered if they would. I think he could make for a dangerous slot wr. Wish he was a couple inches taller but with his speed and shiftiness, especially if he can be a good route runner, he could be lethal.
Of course don’t know just how good his hands are, especially when Stafford let’s a heater go. He might be a little surprised at the velocity, lol
After the trade of Slay, Rashaan Melvin & Tavon Wilson not being re-signed, here’s what the DB depth chart looks like (it’s from Ourlad’s, so it’s their opinion and in some cases just not accurate, but at least it lists the players):
And yet, I don’t know how we wouldn’t be taking a step backwards w/o him. Huntley did KO returns but not punt returns. Agnew averaged over 9 yards per punt return. If they do cut him the dead cap hit is under $65,000, while saving around $800,000. Amendola had 10 punt returns last year for a 5.5 average. If they let him go, I doubt that he has a problem getting a job elsewhere. I would hope that if they move him we at least get a draft pick, 2 return TD’s in a season is worth plenty.
