As the blurb on rotoworld states, $4MM for a 31 year old return specialist is laughable. He won't get half that amount.

Granted he was the best return man in 2013, but that's all he brings to the table.  He is a poor man's Ginn (for our purposes).vector-illustration-of-cool_small.jpg

He is a better returner and equal WR...

Ginn is Hester Lite

i'd pay him 2-3m a year just to take over ginn's role. he's invaluable as a returner and he'd fill a WR position that wouldn't see the field all that much anyway... paying for consistently good field position is well worth it IMO, especially if you're already worried about your offense's ability to move up and down the field.

Agreed. Field position is going to be huge for us this season and our lack of playmakers on offense could be hidden by finding a valuable return guy.

Not equal at receiving last year.  He's probably been experimented with as a receiver more than Ginn without breaking through like Ginn showed he could last year. Plus, he's past his prime.

No way I'm paying him 3 mil a year. We may as well  have kept Ginn.

receiving: ginn > hester

 

returning: hester >>>>> ginn

 

it all depends on what we're looking for

remember also that munnerlyn is gone, which removes a valuable backup PR option. getting somebody proven out there that can return kicks is of the utmost importance

That may be what he wants, but that doesn't necessarily mean he will get it.
