Bills GM Buddy Nix said from the get go that competition makes everybody better. If that’s true the Bills are going to have a whale of a kick returner.
Bills top pick C.J. Spiller already ratcheted up the competition level at kick returner when he was taken ninth overall. Adding him in with Leodis McKelvin and Roscoe Parrish made things steep enough.
Now with the Bills signing of free agent Chad Simpson there’s going to be even more competition. Quality competition. Simpson averaged better than 23.5 yards a kick return last season. That’s not a world beater average, but it’s respectable. He also had a 93-yard touchdown return, so he can take it all the way.
Bills special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven is going to have the kind of dilemma coaches dream of having. There’s probably not going to be a wrong answer between those return candidates.
