Lions | Not planning to keep a kickoff specialist

The Detroit Lions will likely take a second kicker into training camp to share the workload with PK Jason Hanson, but head coach Jim Schwartz said a kickoff specialist is not in the plans for now, reports Carlos Monarrez, of the Detroit Free Press. Schwartz said, "I mean, if the need arose -- I don't foresee that happening -- but if it was a reason it would happen. It gets your roster a little bit because when you carry a long snapper -- that's only a long snapper. And then a kickoff specialist -- that's only a kickoff specialist. It's not just your 53, but it's your active 45 on Sundays. It makes it difficult."
