Another Quick Receiver In Roosevelt Kiser

Another Quick Receiver In Roosevelt Kiser

Roosevelt Kiser is another short, quick, sudden type of receiver that the Jaguars were looking for in the beginning of free agency.

He's a solid punt returner and wide receiver, but at 5'9", 160 lbs., he must bulk up a little to survive the NFL game. Odds of him making the team in '07 appear to be long, but if he impresses he could be a practice squad guy who has a chance to make an impact later down the road.
