Seahawks | Team looking to improve punt return game

Jose Miguel Romero, of the Seattle Times, reports the Seattle Seahawks are looking to improve their punt return game in 2006. Head coach Mike Holmgren said WR Peter Warrick is the leading candidate to be the team's punt returner this year. Warrick lost the job to CB Jimmy Williams early in 2005 before getting it back before the NFC Championship Game. Warrick is trying to win the job over Williams; WR Keenan Howry, a former Minnesota Vikings return specialist; and WR Ben Obomanu, a seventh-round draft pick who didn't get many returns at Auburn. WR Kevin Kasper could be a candidate as well. "The one area that we really, really need to improve is our punt-return game," special teams coach Bob Casullo said. "We were not very good last year, and I'm not putting the blame on the returner. There were a lot of missed blocks. There were a lot of players that didn't do what they were asked to do, and I need to do a better job coaching."
