I say give it a try you never know what will happen


That has nothing to do with it... I just think it is unlikely that the Broncos risk their 65 million dollar man in some sort of 2-way experiment... At least not regularly...

We could be talking about Charles Woodson and I'd say the same thing...

And, I would also be willing to bet that the 'Skins don't decide to make Clinton Portis the punt returner for the same reason: Too much exposure...

Right. You don't want your star player that is detrimental to your teams success getting injured, and by playing him on special teams or offense/defense you are just increasing the chances he'll get hurt.

More playing time=more possibility of getting hurt.

The biggest exception I see here is Moss returning punts and kicks for the Jets, and even that is probably going to stop this year or next.

yeah, I don't know what Moss and Mason are doing still returning kicks - these guys are stud WR doing the most dangerous job in the game.

Returns

I remember way back when Irving Fryar (on the Patriots) took over returns for a while because the team was hurting for a specialist. With Stanley Morgan over the hill, Fryar was the team's only receiving threat, and there he was out there on returns. It was scary. If he'd gotten injured (and the man was a bit prone) the Pats' #2 guy would have been somebody they cut the following year.

You can understand a guy wanting to help a team, or a coach wanting to put his best guy out there, but there are times when you have to say, "Don't do it!"

I was just noticing how ironic it was Dudes.

I don't think you can ever say if you play to much you might get hurt. Take that mind set then you might want to only play ever other down. You can't predict an ijury and if you baby a person cause you pay big bucks to have a name on the roster then you are not getting the value you want for the talent either. Two sides to this argument I believe.

i agreee, you will probably see champ out for a few plays here and there, but he isn't going to be the #3 or #4 receiver on the team.

Again Deion was the best at what he did in his prime. And he still didn't excel on the offensive side of the ball. It will help champs IDP value and really thats all that needs to be said. So bump him up a little. but lets not expect this guy to put up great numbers offensivly
