Nugent is a must, but also we must look deeply out our punting sitation. We need to win the game of field postion, and having a stud punter would help. We lost alot of close ones last year, and special teams was the reason. If we could possibly try to get Todd Saubraun(He is in trouble again, the Kats could be sick of him, he would greatly assist us.).
Roscoe Parish would be very nice too....a true kick returning threat would be great to have.

and what happened to darren bennett this year, the punter? he came in with great expectations, but was stale from the very beginning and never got better.

hey i might be wrong but i was watching like sports wrap in like week 10 and bennett admitted he was kicking like crap...and said they found it was problem with his release of the ball and that they remedied that..

...and wouldn't you know it from that week on on thought he really did a great job punting so i think the vikes will be more than happy to keep him.

Still, the time is right to make a move on Saubraun...the Panthers are getting sick of his antics, and he is getting sick of the Panthers...but yeah....unfortunatly we cant give up on bennett just yet Crying or Very sad .....It would be so much easier to, but we cant just yet.

Antonio Perkins. Solid CB and Special Teamer, and THE best Return Man in College football. Could be had in the 3rd round.

I think Mewelde Moore did a good job returning kicks last season, especially towards the end.
