California coach Jeff Tedford has indicated that starting receivers Keenan Allen and Marvin Jones could handle kickoff return duties this fall. Toss fellow receiver Coleman Edmond into the mix as well.
Allen and Jones would provide a big play element to the kickoff return team, that's for sure. This may be an indication that Tedford wants his playmakers on the field and in position to make something happen more than just from scrimmage. Allen and Jones certainly fit the bill, though the increase risk of injury from bodies flying around it a concern.
