This guy could wind up being an assassin on kick returns. Good move by them, sucks for us.

They have nothing to lose what so ever. It was between Pats and Jets

I'm sure with Demps speed and quickness along with his cut back abilities were going to see him much more than just a KR. I watched a Demps highlight reel
and the man makes getting outside and turning the corner look like a walk in the park.

If he's used in the offense it will probably be in a Dexter McCluster type of role.

He takes up a roster spot though for basically what amounts to a kick returner at the moment. My hope is that they develop him into a Darren Sproles type weapon, since they're built from the same mold. I don't think he'll be as good as Sproles is though, Sproles seems much more elusive and able to break tackles while Demps just has more straight line speed, but hes still got some serious quicks and would be a nightmare to tackle in the open field. If he can't pass protect, then he won't see the field as much as a RB, but maybe as a slot receiver or something

Yea I agree with that, he'll be used like Sproles/McCluster are used

I hope he learns to catch.
