Higgins the Front Runner to Take the Punt Return Spot in 2008?


The Raiders continue to look to see who is going to fill the role of punt returner, and the Oakland Tribune is reporting today that right now Johnnie Lee Higgins is the front runner to replace Chris Carr.  “We’ve had DeAngelo (Hall) back there as well, but we’re really trying to make Johnnie Lee the guy and see how far he can go with it,” coach Lane Kiffin said. Another possible option to take the punt return job is rookie Darren McFadden, but the team may want to think twice about putting their highest profile player in that position.
