I think we all agree that if Joe could just hang on to the ball he would have return duties locked up.

What can be done this offseason to help make that happen?

Bruce DeHaven could talk to him about ball security.

I might even suggest Jim Skipper could help with that.

Ball security drills or having him carry a football around all day everyday and having random people try to come punch it out at random times

I don't think that his hands are so bad, but I think that it's about absorbing contact during special teams. People are coming at you with crazy speed and he's small. But he does need to improve holding the ball closer and higher when fighting for extra yards.

Maybe just hit the weight room a little bit. He doesn't have to add a lot of size, but just enough that I'm not scared of him dying every time he gets hit.

They tried that with Goodson then traded him when it didn't work. It's a goof and the only way it could possibly improve someone is through embarrassment. And most people don't improve by being embarrassed.

i remember hearing that one of the reasons he was benched was that rivera didn't like his side to side and scrambling stuff, that he wanted more north/south running. my thought is if you watched joe adams tape at all you know you're going to get scrambling.

Um, I think his problem is CATCHING the balls as they descend from the air. I don't know if he has the fumbles like AP did a couple of years back.
