I just want y'all guys thoughts on possibly bringing in Devin Hester to be the KR-PR Specialist. My opinion on it, I think he is work a look at least, I mean the guy still got some football left to do some things.

I'd rather see us sign Dexter McCluster over Hester. McCluster is pretty underrated IMO, as he can be used as a returner, receiver, and you can even line him up in the backfield. McCluster is also 25, compared to Hester at age 31.

Yeah he is good too, he is one of those guys you can do different things with him if you have the right coaching to get him plays

Jacoby is much better and brings more to the table than either of these cats. I might be in the minority, but that's ok. I was when he was originally brought in. This guy is making plays to win games right now. Hester is past his prime and dexter while a good player doesn't have that same game breaking ability. Jones is well worth a modest price tag.

McCluster is intriguing, but I've only ever seen his highlight reels. Can he make receiver catches or run routes?

Nope...the Bears tried and tried to make him into a WR but he just never developed. He has the speed to make plays but he would have trouble being more than a 3rd or 4th string WR. But he is one of the best RS in NFL history though.

Trindon Holliday might be a cheaper option...Hester may try and go after all the money he possibly can.

Doesn't he come in for backfield plays too?

He has never had more than 60 yards rushing in a season and never had any scores rushing the ball. He is a versatile play maker but he never developed into anything other than a KR/PR even with all the force feeding he got in Chicago. He could be a good RS and provide WR depth for us though.

100% agree. Plus Jacoby is a great fit in the locker room, with the coaching staff, and truly loves being a Raven. Before the cap increase he was a goner, but with the increase, I have hopes we'll keep him at a fair deal for both sides. He's a game breaker .. We don't win the SB without him, front office hasn't forgotten.

Is it just me or would you also pay Jacoby Jones what he's worth? I think he is without a doubt the premier kick returner in this league and everything he adds on the offensive side of the ball is a bonus. Jacoby Jones has won games for us by himself. I'd pay the man but then again maybe it's just me?

I like the idea of this as well. We saw what he could do in the playoffs two years ago. This guy could really break things open and could be a possible option in the slot as well. He's small but have not really heard many injury issues with him either.
