Wide receiver Santonio Holmes, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, doesn’t know if he’ll be used a punt returner this season.

“I’ll do what ever Coach Tomlin tells me to do,” Holmes said. “I don’t mind returning punts at all.”
There’s speculation that as Holmes continues to develop as a pass receiver, he’ll be used less as a punt returner.
