Rare “Area Of Concern” Identified By LovieMay 18th, 2014
Speaking yesterday to local media, Lovie Smith gave a rare glimpse into something that might be giving him angst. After spending so many years in Chicago with Devin Hester, now a proud member of the Falcons, Lovie sees to be unsettled by the Bucs’ equivalent.
“Punt return. Our punt returner is an area of concern for us a little bit,” Lovie said. “So it was good to see some of the guys [in rookie minicamp] and whether they could do it or not.”
Now was Lovie expressing concern for Page? Or is punt returner an “area of concern” because Lovie is unsure he has a backup for the position on the roster?
That’s a mystery.
Joe’s a fan of Page, who missed his rookie season in Denver with a blown ACL. Last season, Page finished as the NFL’s tied-for-13th-ranked punt returner, among guys with 15 or more returns.
