Denver Broncos Kickoff, Punt Returning Gigs Up For Grabs

At least two position battles still exist as the Denver Broncos enter the final week of training camp.

Broncos head coach John Fox and special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers have yet to decide who the primary kickoff and punt returners will be.

Eric Decker (punt return) and Lance Ball (kickoff return) are atop the depth chart for the return roles but neither player has lined up there this preseason.

"We'll certainly evaluate the guys we have on the roster, guys on other rosters," special teams coordinator Jeff Rodgers said this week. "I feel comfortable with where guys are at, but to say someone has separated themselves from the pack ..."

Wide receiver Matt Willis returned two punts for a total of 6 yards in Sunday's game against the 49ers, and certainly didn't do himself any favors as he tries to overtake Decker for punt return duties.
