Duke standout sneaking up on NCAA record

Yes, there are safety issues with being a kickoff returner, DeVon Edwards admits.

Still, you won’t find the Duke graduate student among those calling for it to be removed from the game of football.

He’s made a career using that play like Rembrandt or Picasso did an easel and some oils. Edwards has masterpiece plays on his resume.

“I feel like that’s a game-changer play,” Edwards said. “I’m pretty sure there are a lot of injuries that come with that, though. You have people coming full speed. I would think the returner is the person that would take the most punishment at the end of the day, and I don’t really have a problem with it. I like kick returning and I don’t think it should go away.”
