Buccaneer's kick return game needs to improve, says Greg Schiano

Tampa Bay isn't getting enough production from its kickoff return team.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano doesn't like what he's seen from his kickoff return team, which could lead to some changes. "We're not doing what I think we're capable of doing," he said. "If you're not liking the result and don't change anything, then don't expect anything to be different."

The Bucs are averaging 20.4 yards per kickoff return, which ranks 27th in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings lead the league with an average of 30.7 yards per return. Despite Tampa Bay's issues, return man Arrelious Benn will not be replaced this Sunday, according to Schiano. Benn is averaging 23.1 yards per return, with a season long of 55 yards. The wide receiver also has four receptions this season.

The Bucs host the New Orleans Saints in Week 7, and they will by going for their second win in a row. The game is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. ET.
