Greatest NFL Kick / Punt Returners


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Eric Metcalf

P 10, considering he split time as a 3rd down back, best 633 yds and 1 x 1000K receiving seasons. He literally best teams himself. Ask Pittsburg. Better than Desmond Howard, who's a bit over-rated in my opinion. Metcalf belongs in the bottom half of the #10 list, worse case. 3 time pro-bowler, 2 x All-Pro makes my case.

22 Teddy Ginn
23 Jacoby Jones

Look what he did dis season and last did you see what he did

Why is he not on this list at #2!

24 Julian Edelman Julian Edelman Julian Francis Edelman is an American football wide receiver for the New England Patriots of the National Football League.

Too good for everyone

He is a tough little bastard that never quits he is a remarkable player who before his unfortunate injury he was leading in touchdowns by wideout recivers

Julian Edelman is such a solid reciever and he's highly underrated + he is a quick, and dangerous returner when it comes to punts


25 Cordarrelle Patterson

He's big and powerful but not only that he is fast and strong

Yeah he's a one season wonder, or it's just a sophomore slump. You can't deny his 109-Yd Kick-Off TD against Green Bay. He probably only has one good play this season, his run against a the Rams in week 1, but that's about it. His rookie season should be at least 5th to 15th

You put Patterson at 21 are you kidding me put him at #2 he had a really good returns last year and his season was awesome he might have been better then Devin Hester

Just the way he can dodge tackles and the way he runs

Put him and Gale sayers up in the top 2

26 Tyler Lockett

Tyler lockett should be on top you fools.

Amazing view of the field. A threat every time he touched the ball.
