I really don't think Logan "sucked". He isn't a great returner, but he's solid and has the speed to create points. He could definitely be upgraded, but he isn't terrible.

He made me hold my breath every time he refused to fair catch a punt. Laughing

Yeah, he was busted last season. No good whatsoever. I will be so happy when he's replaced by somebody that could actually provide some sort of threat returning the ball.

Just another reason why our ST's were trash.

Historically, Miller has never returned punts. Hopefully he can do it, since he hasn't achieved anything as a CB.

He actuality returned 6 punts for 9 yards in his career, so he probably won't be able to do a good job a punter returner.

Shocked

Look out Hester!

Just a camp body. Might take over returning duties but if he won't return punts I don't think he adds much value there.

He hasn't even played in a single game since 2009, when he made one-game appearances with the Raiders and then the Jets. He's got pretty much no chance to make the roster no matter how much people hate Logan.

dont we have enough in the return game? pointless signing imo. id just wait till other teams start cuttn if your looking for cb help. i think we need to trade for a cb..use a 5th/player somethin. after this year mayhew should learn to invest in the position. i hope..

At this point, whatever, the rosters are 90 guys deep. Probably at least 10 or so of the guys we have signed right now will be elsewhere before we even play our first preseason game. Sometimes you just sign a guy solely for the purpose of having enough guys to run special teams drills at training camp without taking someone away from the offense or defense.
