Over the beginning of the season a glaring issue I have seen with the team is the lack of a legit return man.

The 49ers just released Rossum who is 2nd in league history in return yards to make room for Crabtree. Anyone think we should bring this guy in and see if he can make a difference for us?

Its worth a shot with this guy, I think. Im sure he is still fast. The guy was once maybe the fastest player in the league, say, 7 or so years ago.

I wonder what happened in SF? Either way, sometimes guys do better at their next place than they were ever going to do at the previous place.

speed isn't really a big concern in my opinion. Royal and McKinley both have some wheels on them, but just aren't the answer as return men. they are receivers 1st and foremost and fill in as return men because no one else can.

even if Rossum doesn't have the speed he did a few years ago, he still have the experience and knowledge of how to be a successful return man. speed is a reat thing to have as a return guy, but there are a lot of other factors that go into being successful at it.

I say pass... Who would you want to cut? I am fine with the roster as is.

We could cut Moss? Ayres is coming along and Moss's name hasn't been called out much during the game.

I would take Justin Miller over Rossum, Miller is a more better returner and a good nickle back. the Raiders released him last week.
