A groin injury limited him to just three games in 2006 and some hamstring problems cut into his training camp time last year. He caught 19 balls for 149 yards in '07 while returning 18 punts for 93 yards and a 5.2-yard average.Those are numbers Mersal thinks can balloon now that he's healthy."He can be a Wes Welker type of guy for the Bengals," Mersal said of the 5-8 Chatman. "He's had a lot of positive feedback from Marvin Lewis and (wide receivers coach) Mike Sheppard. He's very comfortable there."... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
