Kyle Wilson was a dynamic return man at Boise State. Mike Westhoff named him the primary punt returner a month ago. He did not return any punts in preseason. Perhaps this was because the Jets wanted to get a look at other guys like Larry Taylor and Joe McKnight. It also might have been because Darrelle Revis' absence pushed Wilson into a starting role, and the Jets did not want to put too much on his plate or risk losing him to injury.
Now Revis is back, and Wilson will slide to the nickel role. Taylor is off the roster. McKnight might not even be active for the opener. The door is now open for Wilson to take the punt returning role and give the team another dangerous weapon.
