Leonhard to See Special Teams Time

per ESPN New York:

Special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff has starting S Jim Leonhard on his kickoff coverage team

I think this is a sound move. Leonhard has all of the capabilities to play well on the coverage unit. He is smart, plays within his role without trying to do too much, and is a sound tackler. In other words, his play is the antithesis of what took place against Ted Ginn last year, which undoubtedly played a role in the decision to use a starter in this role.
