Silver medalist and former Florida running back Jeff Demps is close to signing a contract with the Patriots. Will he make a difference this season?
Jaysdailydose: "Before anyone else says an Olympic level sprinter can't make it in the NFL, allow me to remind you of: Willie Gault, Chicago Bears, Super Bowl Champion."
CaliforniaHoo: "Speed kills. Always a place for a guy who goes 4.18 in the 40 and is world class on the track. Other teams will be mortified to see him line up as a receiver or on special teams returning kicks. Changes everything."
Brady4TW: "Fast is good, but does he hold onto the ball when he gets hit? He's not a big guy."
What Would Tebow Do 15: "So Demps was a great pick up by the Pats. Perfect for filling roles the patriots need to compete as the offense slowly ages."
Alvin_Mack58: "I love Demps and I love this signing by the Pats. He is an instant upgrade in the return game and could be a great weapon on third down if used properly. Guy is a football player with world class speed not just a guy with world class speed. "
