New kick return candidate

When all is said and done it’s likely that Reggie Bush will be Buffalo’s primary kick returner in addition to being their primary punt returner. But there was a new kick return candidate who entered the fray at practice Monday.

Rookie CB Kevon Seymour, who has been consistently running with the second team defense at right cornerback, is now part of the kick return rotation during special teams segments of practice.

Seymour ran a 4.39 40-time at the NFL Combine, so his speed is attractive for the role. His kick return experience however, is very limited. The Bills sixth-round pick had just seven kick return attempts in college at USC when he was a sophomore for 92 yards. Though the average of 13.1 yards is not a good figure, it’s a very small sample size.

All that matters is that Seymour was getting a good look on Monday and we’ll have to see if those opportunities spill into the preseason games.
