He's a very good player with one real weakness: his ball-handling. If he was on the Patriots they'd be talking about him on SportsCenter every couple days.
I don't know why he fields punts, though. To me it's not even so much about the potential for injury, it's about him coughing the ball up and hurting us. I'm sure he's worse than league average solely as a returner. I hope we get a specialist #4 WR/CB in free agency or the draft.
