    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.

    Tony Carter? I don't think so.

    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.

    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.

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

    Really wanted Boykin that year, smh.

    I'm still up in the air with Bolden. His first couple years were frustrating. However, I saw him in there a few times last year and saw a few glimpses of what the coaches keep thinking he can be which is probably the replacement for Moore in a season. He's extremely rangy, and should be ok covering over the top. He needs to put it together quickly though.

    The good Holliday was great to watch, man. We haven't had a guy back there with that kind of electricity since a certain number 80.

    Unfortunately, he was exciting for the opposing teams' fan bases, as well.

    Hopefully Burse does well... can earn a roster spot at returner and eventually develop into a starting slot WR.

    4th round pick doesn't pan out. also, we could have had Ed Reeeeeed.
    But yeah, I doubt Bolden is around next year to run kickoffs into the backs of his upmen. That will probably be Caldwell's job to lose.

    I will guess someone that isn't on the roster yet.

    I'm having trouble thinking of a slow white guy small enough to be our fair catch specialist. so there's an apparent hole.
