News: Following the release of wide receiver Bryan Walters, Thomas will likely open the season as Seattle's primary punt returner, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. Impact: Thomas has never returned a punt or kick during the regular season, but he did rip off a 59-yard punt return against the Bears in Seattle's third game this preseason. He has the athleticism to succeed in the role, and he might be able to tack on a touchdown or two through special teams. However, there's also the added risk of injury, which led fellow Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor to say that he thinks the idea of Thomas returning punts is a bad one, ESPN.com reports. Of course, Chancellor doesn't have much say in the matter, and it's far more telling that the Seahawks were willing to let Thomas return punts in the preseason.(RotoWire, )
