LeQuan Lewis Gets Official Kick Returner NodNovember 20th, 2012
It looks like Arrelious Benn will be limited to covering kicks rather than returning them.
During preseason, Greg Schiano made it clear that significant changes in the lineup would be reflected on the Bucs’ depth chart, and one such move was made public when the Bucs released all the fancy data associated with Sunday’s Bucs-Falcons game earlier today.
Benn was booted to backup kick returner and cornerback LeQuan Lewis was promoted to top returner. Michael Smith sits at third on the chart. Lewis returned kicks against San Diego when Benn was hurt, and Lewis handled the duties Sunday despite Benn’s return. He’s had two chances with mixed results.
Between this move and the Bucs apparently (hopefully) banishing the heinous Benn’d Around play, these are tough days for Benn, whose career is nosediving.
