Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

What do you think of this?
I thought we'd finally consider moving to a new punt returner.
Especially with the amount of speed we now have on the team.

REDSKINS NOTES: Defense dominates full-pads workout - Washington Times

Despite a 6.5-yard average and a league-high 21 fair catches, Antwaan Randle El will remain the regular punt returner.

"[Randle El] is going to be the guy, but you might see a little more by committee," special teams coach Danny Smith said. "Who that committee is going to be, let's see how the roster comes out. There are a lot of guys in the mix. My job in the preseason is to see if one of those guys can do it."

Santana Moss returned six punts last year (including an 80-yard touchdown), and DeAngelo Hall has campaigned to be involved. A greater mix of Moss and Hall is a possibility.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

I think we are seeing a change. Smith hints at waiting to "see how the roster comes out." I take that as meaning we'll see what happens with Alridge and Dorsey. Plus it mentions Hall and Moss being more involved.

We're only 3 days into camp, so basically all he's saying is ARE is the incumbent. Sounds to me like he's pretty open to that changing. That's a good thing.

You figure if one of the 2nd yr WR step up that will mean ARL should be well rested. Hopefully his #'s will go up. I was hopeing they would find someone else to do it.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

If Devin wins the #2 receiver position so that ARE moves to the slot, ARE will not be on the field as much. This could help him to become a better punt returner.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

I'd be filled with rage if this happens. Our D is going to be too damn good to have it screwed up by a punt returner who gets no extra yards.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

i would rather have someone else better than ARE but not Moss or Hall either b/c i feel that will put them in situations to cause more injury and we really need them on the field

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

I don't think this will stick, camp just started. We will see a change in our PR specialist (as ARE has not been very effective at that role).

ARE will find a good home as our #3 slot receiver. I look for Devin and Malcolm both to step up.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Devin should be our 2 WR and to be honest I think he could become the 1 through out the season!! So ARE should be fine at PR.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

There has to be at least 1 person on this team who can earn more YPC on punts than ARE. His good old days as a PR specialist are long gone.

I mean my great great old blind granny could do-se-do and then fall to the ground in a heap. And she's not getting paid millions to do it.

She's not getting paid millions because she doesn't do it with the style that ARE does.

If we had the roster space, I think Hagans would make a good punt returner

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

I am not going to sugarcoat this. This is absolute horsesh!t. If he has anything similar to the production from last year, whoever made this decision should be fired at the halfway point of the season.

There is no excuse to completely waste an opportunity that good teams capitalize on. When you score 16 points a game you need to take advantage of punt returns. This really pisses me off.

Hall is begging to do it and they choose ARE?!?! WTF
