    Alex Bannister at KR/PR?



    I just remembered that this guy was a Special Teams Pro Bowler with the Seahawks a few years back. Could this be a replacement for Corey Ross?

    Billick said they like Cory Ross on KOs, but were considering using someone else for PRs. Mark Clayton would be awesome but he is too valuable. Maybe Bannister will get a shot.

    Did Bannister return punts & kicks when he was w/ Seattle or was he a gunner, like Billy Davis was in 2000?

    According to AW, Bannister will be a gunner. He will NOT perform PR or KR duties.
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    That's retarded. Clayton is a weapon, so why not use him? I guess Steve Smith must not be valuable to the Panthers since they use him sometimes for punt returns.

    Well then I guess all 32 coaches in the NFL are "retarded" because they all would same the same thing. (By the way, that is a very offensive saying )

    Clayton is a weapon, but we need our PR more for reliable catches and smart thinking, not necessarily returning for TDs.

    And the thought of Clayton getting a Sams-like injury, giving away to Clarence Moore becoming part of our receiving rotation is enough to make me decide to not use him there. For us to make it all the way, we need Clayton healthy, so I'd rather not risk it.

    He is a gunner, he has limited return or even receiving skills. But is an accomplished Special Teamer on coverage.

    That Sams-like injury could happen to anyone at any point. Either way if Clayton is going to get hurt, he's going to get hurt. You have to put your best players on the field. If that means Clayton has to return kicks then so be it. Hopefully Ross can step up these last 2 weeks of the season and put an end to the option of Clayton returning kicks.
