Is Jamaal Charles returning kickoffs this season?

Postby ramble2 » Tue Sep 07, 2010 2:31 pm

Does anyone know whether the Chiefs plan on continuing using Charles to return kickoffs this season? I can't figure it out.

He had almost 1000 return yards last season, and this greatly impacts his value in a league that counts return yards.

Thanks!

I haven't heard anything indicating he is. I would be shocked if he does any returns. I think hi syardage came early in the season when Bonehead Haley was rolling LJ out every down.

I don't think you'll see him returning kicks much at all. The Chiefs drafted Alabama's Javier Arenas specificially as a kick return specialist and I think you'll also see Dexter McCluster returning punts this year. Charles would be 3rd or 4th as a return option behind these guys and possibly even behind Eric Berry who could be used as a return guy as well.

Go watch Arenas return kicks and you'll see why Jamaal Charles is unlikely to appear in the return game this year for KC:
