I'd give him a look. Think about it. Our fourth RB is going to be Darell Scott, who can't really return punts, and won't see the field ahead of Bradshaw, Wilson and Ware. So why not replace him with Demps, who could at least return punts? Jernigan isn't reliable and looks scared. Hosely is probably our best bet at this point, and he's a rookie. What do we have to lose?

Pass.

Scott flashed a few nice plays in his preseason games last season. I'd rather give him the spot.

Can he actually catch punts?

With the shorter Kickoffs, returners are not really a factor anymore

you think? i think you can argue that it actually makes them more important.

I saw a tweet last night that all 32 teams were interested in Demps. So he basically got to chose the best situation for him. With Bellicheck's ties to Urban Meyer, that was an obvious choice.
