Default The Overlooked most improved player

Adam Jennings. The guy went from being the most frustrating return man anywhere to taking one to the house...on a BOGUS call it got called back...but he did it for the first time, so it shows he's figuring it out, and like we all knew all along he's got the speed. So, it's good to see that he's finally stepping up and getting it done. But he's been getting better every single game lately, it's great that we have a return man who can contribute in more than just the return game.

i dont think he improved that much. everytime he catches the ball i expect him to get hit hard and fumble it. also, on that play where he took it all the way, he foolishly taunted the punter by waving the ball in his direction.

He's been better, but I sure wouldn't mind Eddie Royal or Dorien Bryant in round 3 or 4. Even if we have needs, WR still isn't strong after the top 2-3 and KR/PR is weak.

He has improved, but he still is pretty bad.

You know how other teams get scared when they punt to Devin Hester? I get scared when people punt it to Adam Jennings.

Jennings has improved from horrible to just really bad.

Looks lost every time he catches the ball and goes down at the first touch.



(And I was one of the ones saying "Trade Rossum") Call me wrong

Go back and re-watch this last game. Then go watch the first game. Tell me the change hasn't been drastic. Really bad, to average or better. Not extraordinary but more than serviceable. I'd love a big play return guy, but there just aren't many that don't come at high profile positions that wouldn't cost us too much to draft.

He's turned into a solid PR, not much more. But that's fine. He hasn't had any hint of the dropsies, which is the main thing for a returner. And he showed last weekend that if he gets a chance, he can take it to the house. Hopefully he'll continue to develop into an above average returner.
