Vaughn McClure, of the Chicago Tribune, reports the Kansas City Chiefs have shown interest in restricted free-agent WR Rashied Davis (Bears).

Woo-Hooo!

I would imagine they'd bring Davis in to man return duties.
Though he's nothing to write home about in that role.

I'd rather give Webb a real shot at securing that job.

If we want a return specialist why not just get a young guy in the draft and hope he develops into a regular starter? Fresh legs!

I wouldn't mind picking up Davis.

I think they can just match his offer, no compensation

I remember when we signed a great returnman last year... I'm ready for a young fresh guy. You know, since we are rebuilding and all... why not get a young guy to return kicks too?

If your special teams coaching sucks, no matter how good your return man is he is going to look like crap....

Something tells me there are going to be alot better players than him available at that pick...

Agreed.

I'm wondering why Priefer kept his job?

Just out of curiosity who was the young guy that we had in camp/preseason games last year that appeared to have promise as a return guy but ended up being released before the regular season started? I wonder if he ever made another team's roster or practice squad?

Yeah. Phinisee ended up with Arizona I think.

Just bring in a bunch of fast, shifty college KRs as UDFAs. Let them all fight it out in camp/preseason. I don't like the idea of spending a pick on a guy with the sole expectation that he's going to be a KR specialist and that's all.

I'm really not overly concerned with drafting a return man, it's nice to have but we have much higher priorities than that this year.

It'll take very little to secure someone for that role.
And having a real threat to take one to the house could really help an offense that'll have a lot of growing to do.

Maurice Price was a dangerous returnman in college if memory serves?
I'd like to see us give he and Webb a shot at holding that job down.

What ever happend to Ean Randolph? I was high on him returning last year.

Just saying I wouldn't use a top 3 round pick on it...

How about a #3?
There will be a couple three guys there who can help upgrade your WR spot AND produce on Special Teams...

I'm not big on returnman playing WR also. Dante Hall kinda dropped off when we started using him at WR more, I think its happening to Hester too.

Mecca

I consider those kind of luxury positions if you are going to take one that high...

I'm not big on WR's doing both either, but I figure a guy like Eddie Royal would need time to become a viable option in our offense. Manning return duties would give him and opportunity to get on the field and produce in the meantime.

I agree. One of those 2 could probably do as well as we're gonna see with Priefer coaching STs....

I thought we'd surely see Webb last year before that idiot Drummond came to town...

Having some continuity with Special Teams personnel will go a long way towards fielding a respectable return team as well.

If a guy is the #3 WR and happens to be a decent return guy, bonus. But #1 or #2 I agree I would hope we dont have to use our top WR for return. It would be nice if we could use them in the offense.

Agreed.

I'm wondering why Priefer kept his job?

I'm not sure Priefer was the problem. I may be completely off base but it seemed like our coverage teams were much much better last year. That's just going off watching games and not the stats, so I could be way off base. But I don't remember being pissed off about kick coverage much at all last year while in years past, I was pissed off nearly every time we kicked the ball.

My biggest disappointment in special teams (aside from a good kicker) was the return game. Coverage seems to be more about scheme and preparation, whereas, the return game relies a lot on the man returning the kick, IMO.

Return game has as much to do with blocking as it does the returner.....

You know everyone thinks Devin Hester is awesome which he is but on plenty of his returns he seriously never even gets touched.

I don't necessarily disagree. But you have to have someone that can return the football, too. I'm not willing to say that Priefer is horrible until I believe that blocking is the problem more than returning. I'd say that there's a good chance that a good returner will help the return teams a lot.

Based on the improved performance of the coverage units, I'm willing to give Priefer the opportunity show improvement in the return game if given a reliable returner. Considering that skill players can be vital to special teams, I don't see how he can be judged to be a bust when he's had very little to work with when it comes to a kicker and a return specialist.

Who? If you have to go to the website to figure out who a guy is - it's not a splash. It's a sprinkle.

If I were GM and my team were trying to emulate and pillage an NFL offense, I don't believe it would be the Chicago bears.

Crimeny.....I suppose its time to make a run at Kyle Orton.
