Anthony Madison is now officially gone (at least until he gets cut by the Lions). With the new kickoff rules, it appears that a special teams ace like Madison is less valuable.

I appreciate his contributions in coverage, but I've very glad that we won't have to see him play defensive back again.

We probably could have used him on that long kickoff return against us vs. the Deadskins.

Hopefully, we've got some young bucks who will be able to step up on ST coverage.

Don't think we'll miss him that much in the secondary.

Amen. Madison playing DB was downright frightening. Even my daughters were laughing at how he was getting turned around like a top everytime he reacted to the WR.

Other than Ike, all of our CBs provided great comedic entertainment on the field last season.

Outside of our punt coverage we just don't have a big need on gunners anymore with the new rules in place...
