Obviously, the issue must be within the context of "whom do you cut to keep him?"
I agree. I have forwarded this thought a couple times after watching opponents get great field position on kickoffs and wondered if it made sense to carry a kickoff specialist who could boom them into the endzone for touchbacks.
The problem, as I see it, is if the Cards were close to contending it may make more sense to use up a roster spot. I think the only way to do that is to sneak someone (or try to) onto the practice squad.
I do like the idea though. Bill G was trying to comeback from the kee last year so while his performance sicked, there is a pohysical reason he had isues. If it continues this year? Bye bye Billy.
