2. Jakeem Grant
Jakeem Grant has been back to returning kicks at full speed in practice, so recovery from his torn Achilles tendon seems to be going well.
As a two-time All-Pro returner, Grant is one of the few players who can be a threat to take up a premium roster spot for purely special teams reasons. But that comes with a big caveat.
That would only be worth considering if Grant is back with the exact same explosiveness that made him so dangerous in his prime.
But this is now a 30-year-old returner coming off one of the most devastating injuries that a speedy, agile player can suffer. It would be a complete anomaly if he were able to return without having lost a step.
He may well still be a great returner, but he'd need to be better than just great to warrant a roster spot.
Demetric Felton is showing some real promise in the preseason, too, and he's a capable returner who would be on the roster as the RB3 anyway, making it even harder to justify a roster spot for a pure returner in the WR room.
