Kyle Wilson Will Return Punts; Brad Smith on Kickoffs

Rod Boone gives us the scoop on some key aspects of the kicking game.


Mike Westhoff said rookie CB Kyle Wilson (that's @therealKDUB20 to you) is his punt returner and Brad Smith will return kickoffs.

This should be exciting. The Jets didn't really get much out of the punt return game last year. Jim Leonhard wasn't great. Jerricho Cotchery provided steady hands but wasn't terribly elusive. Things were rough enough for the Jets to toy with Darrelle Revis back there a few times and giving many of us upset stomachs in the process. Wilson was a dynamic return guy in college.

Smith is the incumbent on kickoffs. He has been a good fit due to his open field running ability. I wouldn't be surprised to see Joe McKnight and Wilson run some kicks back also.
