Bucs like 3rd/4th stringer at RB I believe last year. Which is pretty bad IMO.

2008 Pro Bowler as a kick returner/punt returner, which was a big hole for the Packers.

Oh.. So he's a return specialist

He did average 5 yards a carry in 2008 though

Great returner. Lead the NFL the past two seasons. Second player to return a Kickoff for a TD in Buccaneer history.
Shifty but offers nothing in the run game, his fumbling issue is worse than Tiki's was back in the day. He has no feel for the inside game but could be useful as a situational slot or screen back.

Had two concussions last season and seemed like a different player this offseason. Apparently has something similar to gout in his knee that might turn out to be an ongoing issue.

Those issues along with a plethora of capable return men (Michael Spurlock, Sammie Stroughter, and Preston Parker) and being clearly beat out by Huggins as a runner lead him to being cut... not initially though. He was the third back until we picked up Kregg Lumpkin.

Bucs picked up Lumpkin and Ryan... so pretty much a trade. Any info on them?
