If people are hoping that San Diego Chargers rookie WR Tevin Reese becomes the next star kickoff returner on the team, they better put those hopes on hold. He is having issues fielding the kickoffs. He already has dropped a pair THIS practice.

WR Tevin Reese drops another kickoff return. That's two this practice. Repeating camp problem from Chargers' speedy 7th-round pick.

Reese might be the fastest player on the roster, but those wheels are not going to give him any love if he can’t bring the ball in. Can we just have someone catch the ball and hand it off to him?

Reese’s best shot at making the roster would be as a kickoff return specialist. Other receivers on the roster are making a strong impression and Reese would need to show an added value in the return department. Right now, he is having his issues making the catch.
