    They have Moore too. I don't see them signing a guy just to return with those two already on the roster.

    I don't know since he is no longer under contract there could be liability issues if he is re-injured? :shrug:

    they have one. Kirk has literally proven he can’t do the job.

    Kirk unfortunately doesn't like to get tackled
    Keim mentioned the alpha dog mentality, that's not the case
    If u don't want to get dirty u cant excell

    Richard Sherman is on the market. Wouldn't mind signing him.

    That's really not true. By far the most important job of the punt returner is to consistently catch the ball. Kirk can do that.

    He did only average 6 yds per return, which is one of the worst avg's for a primary punt returner in the league - but the average is like 10. The total punt return touchdowns all year was 8 for the whole league - no Returner had more than one.

    The way I look at is if you have a very good offense an additional 5 yards per punt is really not a big deal, and is not going to cost you scores very often at all.

    I am pretty sure Moore will be used as the return man - they even mentioned it while they were drafting him.

    Agreed, and while I agree Kirk isn't a great returner you also have to factor in the situations too. A good defense that's going to force more punts deep in a teams own half are going to force more deep punts while allow the returner more space to return.

    Teams with lesser defenses where teams are punting more often from the 50 and going to be high and short and less returnable.

    Not sure why now makes a difference for guys like Nelson and Hayward who were released thus do not count against comp pick calculation.

    The only reason why Nelson should still be available is because
    1. He wants too much money
    2. Teams waited until after draft to see if they still need a CB.

    I can't imagine Nelson thinking he deserves north of $10M but maybe because he had better seasons than Peterson & Griffin PFF grade wise and is under 30 he is overvaluing himself.

    For me the main thing on a punt return is not to fumble or lose yards. Anything else is a plus. However in Patrick Peterson's rookie year he was phenomenal!!

    What’s your level of conviction with this batch compared to your predraft FA predictions?

    This flies in the face of virtually every comment I’ve ever heard about football at every level.

    The cardinals have been incredible successful in one aspect . . . setting low expectations with their fan base.
