Is it me or is Jim Leonhard a complete waste of roster space? He has got to be the slowest return man in the league, why can't we get Hillman to run back punts or anyone besides Leonard? I'm really missing Eddie, he was good in the slot and was a threat to take one to the house once in a while. An additional 15 yards of field position and I'm willing to bet we'd be 3-0.

Royal is averaging 5.5 yards per punt return this season. The slowest return man in the NFL Leonhard is averaging 5.7.

where did you get that? Royal's punt returns according rotoworld are 18, 3, and 1. Granted sample size is small that's still an average of >7 yards a return

That 18 yards is the total from 2 punts in one game.

Royal was overrated. He had one good game against the worst special teams unit in NFL history in the last twenty years and people suddenly declared him Hester's twin. The truth is Royal sucked at returns. At least Leonard nets positive yardage every time.

While it would be nice to have a returner with legit ability to take it to the distance every time he touches the ball, Royal competed with DJ Williams as the most overrated player on this team for years.

Royal was a dud as a receiver, but he definitely was better return man than Leonhard. I honestly think we have the worst punt returner in the league right now.

Your right Decker was stupid for taking that last punt out of the endzone with 33 seconds left.

Decker's a dip**** and a pussy. But he's still a better return man than Leonhard.

I guess if the Broncos need another player to make tackles 10-20 yards down field, then sure, he is missed.

He has veteran depth at safety i wouldnt say thats a waste of a roster spot

I don't miss him at all, at any position. I guess I could say I miss Rick Upchurch or Darrien Gordon. What has Eddie done in the NFL lately.

Royal 3yrs $13.5m, $6m guaranteed, 23-234-1

Stokley 1 yr $925k 45-544-5
Leonhard 1 yr $890k

You do the math.

I'm pretty sure every single Charger fan would drive Eddie back to Denver given half a chance.

Obviously this is an old thread, but the ridiculousness of the premise is the same now as it was in September. Eddie Royal at no point was a good return option. I'm not sure when basically the entire Broncos fanbase decided he was amazing, (apparently the game Khan mentioned) but all he did was call fair catches. On the off chance that a punt came to him with more than a 20 yard halo, and he had no other option but to actually return it, he would merely run straight forward until he was tackled.

This bugged the hell out of me the entire time he was here and I couldn't have cared less when he left. Granted Jim Leonhard is useless as well and basically does the same thing I just said Eddie did, but he doesn't cost anything and at least everyone else recognizes that he isn't an amazing returner.

I like Eddie Royal as a person, but he's basically half a step from being out of the league at this point.

23 catches for 230 yards in 10 games and a 5.5 yard return average.

Kid hasn't broken 60 catches since his rookie year. He's had five receiving touchdowns in four years.

I hope San Diego cuts him and he signs with us, he would be an upgrade over Willis w/ Manning throwing him the ball. Not to mention Eddie is an awesome personality and was great with the fans.
