    Kendal Wright, Tommie Campbell, and Damian Williams have return experience.

    Here's my 2 cents on Jackie Battle, he's the 4th best RB, we're only carrying 3 plus maybe Reynaud. So Jackie Battle aint making this team unless he can play FS.

    I can easily see Battle making the team.. it all depends on Mariani's recovery. If Mariani fully recovers from that injury, he'll most likely win the return job. I think Battle is easily the third best RB we have, Parmele being 4th, and Reynaud 5th.

    We won't get two return specialists, so if Mariani wins his job, that will clear the road for Battle to make the team as the third RB.

    I would settle for Battle as the short-yardage back and ditch Greene.
    Not sure Greene is the 2-3M/year better.

    Wow, that would be suicide, Battle is awful.

    But is Greene that much better? - And Battle has yet to fumble in his career.

    No. I also think you may have an issue with counting words. That space between Tommie and Campbell actually makes it two words.

    Thats suppose to impress someone? Have you seen this cat run? He's horr-ible!

    He looked good vs only one team last year, us, which isn't saying much.

    So IDK why people are behind him, Shonn Greene is 10x better for us than Battle is.

    Would not risk Kendall. Tommie, not sure I would trust him with the ball. Damian, possible, but I think he tried his hand at it last year with unimpressive results.
