All signs point to the Oakland Raiders making a change at the kickoff returner position. According to Steve Corkran, Taiwan Jones returned all kicks at Thurday’s practice. Seems like a great move to me. Jacoby Fordwill likely miss his second straight game, and Nick Miller was awful on kick returns vs. the Bills.
I was actually shocked how bad Miller was against the Bills. I think anyone of us could have gotten as many yards as Miller on returns last Sunday, and probably more is we could’ve avoided slipping.
All reports indicate Jones was fielding all kicks clean and smooth. He certainly has the explosion to succeed. Every time he touches the ball he creates the feeling like he is on the verge of eating up huge chunks of yardage in a breathtakingly short amount of time.
