No. He was very rarely hurt at Florida. His injuries have been torn muscles and I think thats due to his training for track sprinting and not football. His body has become geared to exploding for short distances , not all the stop start of a football game.

I think if he committed to playing football and was with the team an entire off-season his injuries wouldn't be near as frequent.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Meh. I don't think there is any reason to label him as injury prone. If he is truly done with track and dedicating himself 100% to football, he should be good.

Trindon Holliday will also become a free agent.

Speed isn't the most important factor in returning kicks, though. Vision is.

Speed is important if you want to take it to the house , though. Otherwise you constantly get run down like Aaron Stecker.

   Vision won't often get ya to the house, but speed won't get ya thru traffic either. Takes BOTH to be successful,

Or Mike "4.3" Smith.

Or Eric "The Dumb Turtle" Paige. (Sp)

Have to have some long speed.

Peanut was slow as well. He had some nice returns but he was almost dragged down on most of them.

He had limited speed, awful hands, and great vision.

Loved how Olson would use him as a running back. Not.

Hester on NFL Network: "Tampa, I look at Lovie as my number one coach right now because he's the one that took a chance on me coming out of the draft. He has all of my respect so if he's the guy that is going to shoot at me and want me to come play with him again, my arms are open."

He also said that it is "possible" that he is re-united with Lovie in Tampa.

Charlie Gardner wasn't available?
