This is not a post exhorting that we bring back Redman.
And, Logan is a great story. Seems like a god kid. But we need to face facts: He is taking up a roster spot to return kickoffs, and he just isn't that good. Not that he isn't good returning kickoffs -- he is an upgrade (albeit a slight one) from last year. He just isn't good enough to warrant a full roster spot.
It's like keeping a guy on the Penguins just because he can score in a shootout. (They had a guy like that, and they wisely traded him...)
Yeah, Logan also is on the kick coverage team -- and how is that working out? He left his lane in the kick off return on Sunday. He wasn't alone in that... but the point is he is no Special teams ace.
Meanwhile, one thing that has killed the Steelers has been their kickoff return coverage.
We would be better off having two kickers: Jeff Reed for accuracy, and another guy whose only job would be to kick the ball out of the end zone. Imagine what the Steelers would look like if every kickoff meant the other team had to start on the 20?
If I am going to devote a full roster spot to one Special Teams player... let him be a kicker with a super leg. I don't care if he can kick an extra point or a field goal. I'll keep Skippy for that. But give me a guy who can boom it out of the end zone on kickoffs. They are out there...
