    Well, if he is healthy and apparently, has been working out, yes, by all means, have him return! Pun intended... Even at 30 he should be swift enough.

    That should be a definite upgrade!

    Re: Horne making a come back

    He left the nfl in part due to drug related issues. We dont need him back. He is 30 years old and i dont care what "extensive training" he has gone through, i strongly doubt that he is going to "get his speed back" at age 30 from any type of training. Not worth a roster spot in my view.

    I strongly believe that people put too much focus worrying about the return game. To the extent that we are going to use roster spots on pure special teams value, i would much rather have it be on guys that can tackle people and prevent us from giving up big plays, than worrying about a couple of td returns per year at most. To put it another way, our problems arent field position on offense by a few yards, they are DEFENSE related and thats where i want to see us deploy our assets and improve our team.

    Re: Horne making a come back

    Something tells me the new regiem isnt interested in brining back old guys from the glory days, ie Marshall.

    That being said it couldn't hurt to bring him back for a year, draft/sign a young guy and have Horne do his best to teach him the secrets of returning.

    I'd bet good money that Martz will give him a look in Detroit.

    I think I saw him on Cops .....running out of a crack house. That's the training he's probably referring to.:x

    Re: Horne making a come back

    Please no, I'm not intrested in giving former Rams players a shot just due to thier past history with the Rams. The past is the past they are not here for a reason, lets move on to bigger & better things. I would much rather we go after younger players that have talent to be developed. This team needs to get younger not older.

    Re: Horne making a come back

    ....but he signed my "Eleven Men Believed" book. Since he was a KR, does that mean that he wasn't one of the eleven that believed?

    Re: Horne making a come back

    The Rams' return game has sucked for so long that I don't even remember what good field position is after a kickoff. Regardless of his past with the Rams, if he can come in and spark the return game then I'm all for giving him a shot. It's hard to imagine a guy that's been out of the NFL this long have a realistic chance of making it but he would likely be very cheap and he couldn't be any worse than what the Rams have been using.
