‘No steps back’: Jets’ Brant Boyer looking to rebuild his unit

When Brant Boyer stepped into his room for the first time this year, he came with a message.

“There is no steps back,” he told the Jets’ special-teamers, despite the obvious factors indicating otherwise.

Andre Roberts, a First-Team All-Pro returning kicks and punts last season with the Jets, will now face them twice next year with the Bills. Roberts led the league in yards per punt return and in total kick return yardage. Likewise, the Jets average starting drive position last year was their own 29-yard line — seventh-best in the league despite a defense that was 25th in yardage.
