In 2004, Broussard averaged 23.1 yards on kick returns and 4.3 yards on punt returns in eight games with the Carolina Panthers.
The 5-9, 175-pound Broussard, who entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of San Jose State, has never caught an NFL pass after spending all of last season on Cincinnati's practice squad.
Among the other candidates to return kickoffs are incumbent Wes Welker, Kelly Campbell, Frank Murphy and Shirdonya Mitchell. On punt returns, Welker's competition could come from Marcus Vick and Broussard.

In case you hadn't heard, Ricky Williams' second game in the CFL didn't go very well, as he was held to only 14 yards rushing on eight carries in Toronto's 17-9 loss to Winnipeg.
