Rotowire is saying no.

Santonio Holmes (PIT - WR)

Holmes will not return kickoffs or punts following the acquisition of veteran Allen Rossum. [-]

Impact: "Holmes is an emerging football player as a wide receiver and we want him to focus on that right now," coach Mike Tomlin said at his weekly press conference. "Acquiring Allen allows us to do." It's conceivable that Tomlin could turn to Holmes if Rossum, Willie Reid and perhaps Cedrick Wilson don't work out, but it looks as though Holmes' fantasy value will solely come from the wide receiver spot barring any drastic changes.

Its actually a good sign, they like what they see out of him at WR, he is emerging and his big play threat will be used alot on offense, they would rather him focus on WR and improving as much as possible, and not being risked to injury...holmes is my sleeper wr pick for having a breakout season, he should get over 1000 yds receiving with around 6 tds
