Chad Simpson Expected to Return Kickoffs

11

For those hoping to see a bit more of Sam Giguere on kickoff returns, sorry to inform you that Chad Simpson will retain this position, according to comments Polian made yesterday: Chad, of course, had a kickoff return for a touchdown against Jacksonville and he'll be back there returning kickoffs in the playoffs. I personally think this is better... why mess with what has been a reliable part of special teams? Simpson's no barn burner but I'd rather have the ball at the 20 - or even the 10 - every single time than give it up to the opponent at our 30 (or worse).
