Aren't you the same guy who said Green Bay wouldn't try and retain their pro-bowl safety, Nick Collins?

As to Chad Jones being a great return specialist, he could very well be, but great may also be overstating it a bit based on his stats:
2009: 6 Punt Returns for 129 yards and 1 touchdown - longest PR 93 yards for TD against Miss.State; 1 Kick Return for 5 yards, 0 touchdowns;
2008: 8 Punt Returns for 95 yards, no TDs - longest 24 yards, 2 Kick Returns for 25 yards, no TDs - longest 17 yards;
2007: 17 Punt Returns for 112 yards, no TDs - longest 15 yards, 4 Kick Returns for 90 yards, No TDs - longest 33 yards.
For example, Both Gilyard and Arenas had a lot more experience (and better stats) at both KR and PR in 2009 (of course. Spiller blows away the field at KR). But in any case, I have no doubt Jones would be a better option at RS than what the 49ers have now and quite probably likewise for safety over the longer term.
