New KO rules=Quadree making roster??

Recommended Posts

Just some food for thought.  With the new KO rules that are likely to pass, it seems to me to possibly open up MORE dynamic returns, as there is more space since the KO team will not be able to have a huge run-up.

So, this seems to at least strengthen the case for a player like Quadree to make the roster as a return specialist. 

Thoughts??

I don't think so. I don't know the specific stats but I'd venture a guess that at least half the KOs go out the back of the Endzone. Couple that with the new rule that if the ball touches the Endzone its an automatic Touchback, KRs are becoming obsolete. Quadree will have to impress as a PRr and show some ability as a WR to make the team.

Nah. Well, it's possible; in future. It's very likely the teams like the Steelers will wait this out to see how successful the rule can be implemented then Henderson may be considered for a spot in 2019. Special team is a huge need if our offense couldn't move up well and that's not the case.

 

It's why bad offenses usually have really good special team.
