We may finally have reliable Special Teams... as soon as we cut Alex "30Yards And Under" Henery wink.gif

It's often overlooked, but there has to be a place for a couple of STers on the roster like Maragos and Braman as well as specialists like Jones and Donerbos. So I like our start to FA.

As regards Henery, I'm sure he's a nice guy but that doesn't convert forty yarders into three points.

I love STs. Magaros and Braman and probably Jenkins added to Boykin, Casey, Mathews along with the Jones and Sproles contracts spells fun and fireworks with our STs and important support for our O and D.

It's the old idea of "hidden yardage". Good special teams play may only mean five or ten yards difference but that can make the difference between being in FG range and having to punt. Equally a shorter field gives our offense more options, and a longer field is easier to defend. All truisms, but it takes good STs play to make it happen.
