Chiefs plan to use Dee Ford some on special teams

Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub is looking for some young players to fill the roles on coverage and return units, including first-round pick Dee Ford.

The Chiefs led the NFL in average starting field position (the 33.4 yard-line) as well as opponents’ starting average field position (23.2-yard line).

So special teams coordinator Dave Toub is looking for some young players to fill the roles on coverage and return units, including first-round pick Dee Ford.

“I want to see Dee Ford,” Toub said. “I know he is going to be a pass rusher for us, but he’s also going to play some special teams. I’m excited about seeing him. (Wide receiver) Albert Wilson, I want to see him in some coverage, we know he can be a returner, we believe he can. We want to see him cover some kicks.

“(Safety) Daniel Sorensen is certainly on that list, all the rookies, we can’t wait to see those guys.”
