The Jets did not really get much out of their punt return game in 2009. Jim Leonhard and Jerricho Cotchery did not show much of an ability to make people miss or hit the corner. In Kyle Wilson the Jets did not only land a top notch nickel. They landed an excellent punt returner with good speed and vision.
He returned 3 punts for touchdowns in his career at Boise and averaged over 13 yards per return in his junior season. The Jets have added a number of playmakers with the football. Now Wilson gives them a dynamic threat on punt returns. Even when Leon Washington was making a name for himself as a returner, he was mainly doing damage on kickoffs. Wilson will add an extra dimension.
