I could see Ajiritutu making the team. Again, it's partly injuries but they seem to like him.



He did nothing but ride the pine last year. I would rather keep Armanti than him.

He played in 14 games last year....It might not be a sexy name but they used him a ton on special teams.

Which would seem to say that he had better show up this year. If he needs to play STs, and we upgraded STs, he may have little to no wiggle room. He may need to show that he may/could finally be that guy we have been waiting to see at WR. Or, I could be grasping at straws?

He has experience, knows the system, and has proven to be an asset. Is that enough to keep him around? We shall see during the next month or so. Part of me is pulling for him.

He played a whopping 48 snaps out of a possible 1074 offensive snaps. 27 of those came in week 17 when Naane was out. He was targeted twice with one reception for 4 yards.

We are loaded now with players who can play special teams and I can't recall him doing 1 good thing on special teams last year. There is absolutely no way we waste a roster spot on this guy.

He is the only Wide Receiver we have that plays the "Karl Hankton" position. We have two returners, two receivers and after that it's up in the air. There is no reason for you to quote his offensive snaps or give your memory about his special teams performance. You don't keep a 6th or 7th receiver to catch 30 balls. If you carry that many it's for special teams. We don't go 5 wide. We keep Olsen on the field and even Shockey in the past. This isn't Madden. You don't sign the guys with the highest overall rating. Everyone needs to fill a role.

Rivera is just bringing in high character, and hard working guys. Hopefully it equates to some wins on the field

Your reaching now. Hankton was a special team captain, tutu not so much. The only correlation between the 2 is they played wide receiver and did not contribute offensively. We have many guys that can play special teams on this roster and provide better depth whether it be at receiver or another position. We'll just have to agree to disagree on this one.
