2024 NFL Offseason

Change in the Air Already for NFL Special Teams?

Beyond that UFL kicker and his historic feat this weekend, as linked above, here’s something I have not seen in the NFL in many years.

Here’s the first team to scout a player who is also kick returner that I have read about after the approval of the new kickoff.

Now with all things about the same for candidates for WR5 or WR6 on a roster, perhaps sometimes teams will choose the player with better kick return skills?

We won’t really know definitively until we actually see how the new kickoff works out and then how teams adapt so as to cover the kicks, especially when the return man and his team have exceptional skills.
