Tevin Reese wants to take the return job for the San Diego Chargers


The San Diego Chargers brought in Tevin Reese through the draft in order to add some speed onto the roster. He was brought in to stretch defenses. He might not be able to contribute in that manner in his first year in the league, so he will be looking to contribute in a different manner in his first season.

Another way that Reese can help out the team is on special teams. Reese didn’t return kicks during college because his college coaches didn’t allow starting players to play on special teams. The last time he took on that role was during high school, but he will be looking to take that role with the San Diego Chargers in the NFL.

Reese can help jump-start this part of the game with the Chargers. THe special teams have struggled since Darren Sproles was allowed to leave.

Reese wants the job and wants to excel at it:

“I really want to be a return guy,” Reese said, via UT San Diego. “I wanted to do it all throughout college. I did it throughout high school and I was good at it. I’m ready to get back out there and return some kicks.”

I hope that Reese takes this job and will bring that spark that we are looking for. We need to get better field position after teams kickoff the football.

    I don’t care who wins the job as long as they’re good at it, but with his speed, Reese probably would be.

  • Braulio

    Him be he’s really fast

    My only concern with Reese is size. Denver’s return man last year, Trindon Holliday, was of similar size to Reese and he had trouble holding onto the football on contact. If Reese can get hit without fumbling, he seems to have more than enough speed and agility to handle returns. Fingers crossed. For some reason, I’m really rooting for the guy already.

    I would like to see him get some time there in the preseason. That will go a long way in seeing if he can handle the job. I would also like to see him get some packages on offense be it just straight go routes or even the good old end around/ reverse.

      I am right there with you. let him get action and make things happen. it will be up to him to take that job

  • Kenny Weeks

    I seriously think this guy will be the green of this season. He’s going to do some big stuff.

      it would be awesome. cant wait to see what he does with the ball in his hands

  • powderBLUE801

    I would like to see grice or Reese take it. And also for the punt return job as well. I just want to see some fresh legs out there. Royal has had his chance and didn’t show to much flash.
