    Return specialist Darius Reynaud appeared in seven games with the Titans and two with the Jets last season.
    Reynaud has appeared in 48 NFL games over five seasons with the Vikings (2008-09), Giants (2010), Titans (2012-13) and Jets (2013). He has averaged 9.7 yards with two touchdowns on 102 punt returns and 22.6 yards with one TD on 104 kickoff returns.

    In 2012, Reynaud led the NFL with 1,650 combined kick return yards and tied for the league lead with three kick return touchdowns. Both of his punt return TDs (of 69 and 81 yards) came in the Titans’ 38-20 win over the Jaguars on Dec. 30, 2012.

    Thompson entered the NFL in 2012 with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent from San Jose State. The 5-10, 180-pounder has spent time on the practice squads of the Falcons and Redskins, but has not appeared in a regular-season game.

    Way averaged 41.0 yards on five punts in the first two preseason games. The first-year pro, who also spent the 2013 preseason with the Bears, was competing with sixth-round pick Pat O’Donnell.

    Rempel signed with the Bears April 7 after spending the last 10 seasons in the Canadian Football League. He was competing for the long-snapper position with first-year pro Brandon Hartson[​IMG]

    Ok... this is ridiculous. We need to come up with a nickname for Emery. The guy is like a man possessed when we have a need.

    Anyone think that CB might be the end of the Hayden era?

    Reynaud's size reminds me of Weems. Is he any good?

    Read the article where it says he was the leading returner in the NFL in 2012 and had 3 TDs. He's certainly better than what we have. I kind of figured we'd be looking for some help there soon.

    Keeping Way and Rempel at this point makes no sense if O'Donnell and Hartson are the clear winners and I think we all figured they would be.

    Well STeams are set now at P, PK, and LS now as we have to do is find or returns guys.
