    The only way I can think of to determine if anyone is better at fielding punts than Leonhard is to practice it full speed on a full practice field; for all we know, this is already happening. The first job of a punt returner is to decide if he's going to get under it, or let it hit the ground. If he fields it, next job is ball security. If it hits the ground, he and everyone else on PR team needs to stay clear.

      I like him back there only because he's a safe bet. Remember last year??????????????????

        Bingo. I so miss Eddie Royal too for not only his return abilities, but what he could do with Manning as QB. I bought his jersey and still follow him on facebook. He not only would have made this team, but made this team even better.

        He also is a stand up guy on and off the field and SO wish he was still here.

            What we need is a playmaker. I would suggest a player who is a two for one player. Example: Tavon Austin, West VA. Someone who can take it to the house both as WR/slot and punt returner. Also, as a safety outlet for Peyton.
