You and I both agree on something.

I think he would eventually get destroyed. Returning kicks or punts is different than lining up and playing offense. In the former you see what's coming towards you while in the latter you don't.

Since Banks is fast, he could be used on reverses and the bubble screens that were used at Baylor for RG3. The coaches would have to find a way to use him much like in the New England game last year when Banks tossed a TD pass to Moss.

Re: Shanahan Tells Banks He Better Learn to Play WR

I've lost faith in Banks. Unless he proves something this preseason, he's not worth the cap and roster space. In a league where kickoffs are touchbacks up to 45% of the time, can't see a reason to keep an underperforming smaller injury-prone one-hit wonder who recently had off-field issues.

He's the lightest player in the NFL, so pound-for-pound -- we're overpaying.

Didn't see that game, Larry?

Paul destroyed Austin Pettis TWICE on punt returns...got flagged and I believe fined too.

Pettis refused to call for fair catches.

If the Redskins do release Banks, Banks will undoubtedly pull a Desmond Howard. He will go to another NFL team and be a spectacular all pro at returning kicks and punts.

No. He won't. I will bet you any amount of money on the matter.
