ESPN: New Special Teams Stats

In conjunction with a big ESPN HOT READ feature today on special teams gunners, this Insider piece looks at the leaders over the past five seasons in three new FO special teams stats: Return Tackles, Return Stops, and Return Saves. If you have been looking for a stat that finally gives Brendon Ayanbadejo, Chase Blackburn, and Kassim Osgood the love they deserve, this is it. For non-ESPN Insiders, we'll re-introduce these stats on FO near the end of the season with an article detailing 2010 leaders.

I wonder how many saved Dan Sepulveda has. I would have pegged him as one of the best athletes at punter, but I didn't know about Weatherford. Anyone know enough to compare them?
