Coach Rex Ryan named Saalim Hakim the Jets' kickoff primary returner.

Rookie Jalen Saunders will presumably return punts. A Tarleton State alum, Hakim clocked forty times in the 4.2s at his 2012 Pro Day. 24 years old, Saalim is the younger brother of former Rams star Az-Zahir Hakim.

Good for him. Now he gets a front-row seat to watch the ball fly over his head.

Remember that time a few months ago when I said I had blue balls, and you, well, you gave a brother a hand?

That would be it for me..

He looked good as a gunner on the punt team, guess he's making the team based on special teams value?

Did he even line up at that position this pre season? I thought it was always Ford?

apparently he did it for the jets last season. 

 

CHARLOTTE -- Wide receiver Saalim Hakim, who was signed Friday from the practice squad, is expected to return kickoffs Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. He will be the New York Jets' third kickoff returner in as many weeks. It will be his NFL debut.

He has to based on his play -- Salas has really earned that spot.  If they screw this one up my head will explode.

He will play slot #5 at the bottom of the depth chart and be cut at the end of the season... These type of things happen all the time for early round busts.. no worries he'll end up on the Browns practice squad one way or another.

Yeah, it's possible. He wont be seeing much action though if he's kept around. The effort on the slant he ran on Friday night was pathetic. Guy on the bubble half assing routes.

You could truly see no effort on that slant... either he just shows no effort or he sucks so bad he's making it look like he's not even trying.

Hopefully he puts that monster 40 time down on the turf.. cause Gates, Hill, McKnight, and Ford certainly never did.

He won't get the #3 spot. Kerley has the slot locked down.

Hakim was back there every kick against the Giants and looked decent enough to me on the punt and kick cover teams. It seems like they are making roster space for him, but I never see him do anything at WR.  Strange.

Yeah, I doubt his making of the final roster (assuming that happens) will have any impact on what they do with the WR position.  It seems that he's earning his way onto the roster strictly based on ST, and it just so happens that WR is the position he's listed at.  There's a couple of guys like that on each team.  While I'm sure they'll try to groom him to be a contributor at WR while he's on the roster, they won't be counting on him to be one this year, and aren't likely going to cut a guy like Salas for him either.

By day he's the (not so) mild-mannered Bleedin Green, but by night...

One thing that is not clear is will Saalim Hakin be the kick returner for the rest of the season, the next pre-season game  or something else.

He actually played the position last year, but they only used him on a couple of reverses.  I think he was actually liste as a captain the first game he played.  I know he got caught for a big loss on one reverse and had something like an 8 yard gain on another.  Not sure if he had any more, but I am pretty sure that he had zero receptions.

May he go in the way of past great KO returners: Justin Miller, Brad Smith, Leon Washington. All we need is for Westhoff to come back, and the ball to come back five yards.

Being named KOR means he's also tying up one of the WR spots. I don't see the Jets carrying more than six. Decker, Kerley, Hakim, Saunders, Salas, and one of Nelson/Hill is my guess. With Evans on the IR, and Enunwa (hopefully) on the practice squad.
