I love how people just pencil Boykin in over Hanson though he has yet to even suit up for a practice. It's just as likely Boykin is a complete bust as it is he ever replaces Hanson.

I wouldn't go as far as to say he's got the nickel spot right now either, but I think he could easily earn the dime slot CB position early in camp. I do however believe he is the best Kick off return guy on our roster right now, so that job should be his for sure.

We have a list of guys that will compete in the return game plus Jackson will still get his chances in certain situations.

Jackson is strictly a Punt Returner. Last year saw Dion Lewis return kick offs, so that can easily be upgraded.

Maclin will get looks, plus it will be an open competition between Boykin, Lewis, Brown/Cooper/Polk, Harris and Damaris Johnson. I do believe Boykin is the favorite going into camp.

I think it's Boykin or Damaris Johnson as KR.

Hanson was so so last year, so I would really like if Boykin could win the spot in TC.

Wes Welker ate his lunch. And everything Hanson owns. While Welker is the best Slot in the league, but I would prefer Hanson could atleast stop a guy like him for a play or two.

If that's what you're basing his so-so season on, I would to remind you that Welker kinda led the league in receiving. If that game is your only basis, I would go back and re-examine Hansons year.

I didn't, but he wasn't as good last year as the previous two years, and while that may just be a down year, Hanson is getting older.

And Boykin is younger and offers versatility as a returner.

Not directed at anyone who has done this but let's just get this out of the way because I know it's going to pop up sometime:

His name is Brandon Boykin.

There is no "s" after Boykin.

Thank you. Very Happy


Finally, someone says it!!!!


oh c'mon, somebody needed to replace Asante Samuels Laughing Laughing

Ha, yea Asante was probably called Samuels more than he was Samuel while he was here.

Speaking of Asante, Boykin is taking #22 as well, confirmed it on twitter
