Denard Robinson returning kicks? Could happen, says Brady Hoke

Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson could see some time returning kicks in the coming weeks.

The Michigan Wolverines have a pretty dynamic threat in quarterback Denard Robinson. He's a dual-threat quarterback, and the definition of a "playmaker" at the college level. Just how much of a playmaker is he? Well, you can scroll down to watch his highlight video. Also, you could note the fact that his coach, Brady Hoke, had him in on the kickoff return team on Saturday against Michigan State.

More than that, Hoke said that Robinson could see more time on the return teams, which essentially means that Robinson -- again, a quarterback -- could see some kickoff returns, as noted by the Detroit News. Hoke said Robinson getting more time on the kickoff team is "not a bad idea."

According to MLive.com's Kyle Meinke on Twitter, Hoke said that Robinson playing more on the kick return is "a possibility." So there's plenty of fuel for that fire. It wouldn't exactly be the first time a quarterback got back there and returned kicks.

Here's that highlight video we promised:
