Darrin Simmons on Mario Alford and Giovani Bernard returning kicks

New, comments

Cincinnati Bengals special teams coach Darrin Simmons believes rookie receiver Mario Alford can make a contribution as the team's primary returner, but needs to see more.

Alford, a seventh-round pick from the 2015 NFL draft, spent most of the team's spring practices returning punts and kickoffs as the team develops him as a primary returner.

Simmons adds running back Giovani Bernard as a possibility too.
