Demps & the Patriots' return game
By Mike Reiss
Early in the 2010 season, the Patriots' kickoff return game was one of the most explosive in the NFL. Receiver Brandon Tate, a 2009 third-round pick, was a dynamic presence whose contributions as a returner directly led to victories.
But Tate tailed off, ultimately was cut during the 2011 training camp, and the kickoff return unit has been evolving since.
One intriguing possibility has surfaced if the team is considering an addition to the ranks -- former University of Florida football and track star Jeff Demps.
