One of the few areas the Bills did not struggle in last season was special teams. Not only did they excel in the kicking game, but they also finished sixth in kickoff-return differential. This year, however, things could be even better for the return units. "I've been a couple places where we had some good returners, (but) I don't know if we've had quite as many as here," special-teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven recently told PFW. "The problem is that there's only one of them that can have their hands on the ball at one time. Still, you'd rather have more of them than less." One of those who has looked good with the ball in his hands is 2010 first-round pick C.J. Spiller, who could wind up as the team's primary return man. With speedsters like Roscoe Parrish and Leodis McKelvin also in the mix, the Bills will be counting on their returners to improve field position and ease pressure on an offense rife with question marks.
