    Roby would be nice but I don't think they will risk him on returns except in certain situations.
    I agree.

      I thought I was generally thought that Sanders would be KR/PR this year.

      We still have Welker for those in-20 returns.

      Burse is iffy to make the team.

        My money is on Burse.

          If Tampa Bay ends up cutting Eric Page when the rosters are trimmed, I'd be on the horn immediately if I were John Elway.

          Denver signed Eric Page out of Toledo as an UDFA in 2012 and he had the inside track on the return job before he tore his ACL right before training camp started. That October, Denver signed Trindon Holliday and Denver had their return man for that season and the next season.

          Eric Page signed with Tampa Bay last season and returned kicks and punts for them. Page played decently for Tampa Bay, but he wasn't 100% coming off the ACL injury. He still averaged 24.9 yard per kickoff return and 10.9 yards per punt return.

          Page also saw some playing time at WR for Tampa Bay and has some definite potential as a slot WR in the NFL.

          Page should be as close to 100% as he's going to be from that ACL injury this season and I expect him to be an impact returner for whatever team he's playing for.

          I think Page will end up making Tampa Bay's roster again, so I'm not getting my hopes up, but I'd be all over it if I were John Elway and Page got released by Tampa Bay.

            Tony Carter? I don't think so.

              Considering we will have a ton of picks (5, 5, 6, 7 + COMP) -- draft a guy in 2015 as well who is awesome at returns. Goodley, Montgomery, Diggs and McBride perhaps. Goodley will probably go where Eddie Royal got drafted though.
