Punters and kickers tend to be some of the most unique players on an NFL roster. In a sport filled with 200-plus pound players that can fly around the field at ridiculous speeds, kickers tend to look to avoid contact whenever possible.

That wasn't the case for Dallas Cowboys punter Chris Jones, however, when he laid an absolutely massive hit on a Detroit Lions return man.

An All-Pro returner, Andre Roberts is not an easy man to bring down. He had 2 punt return touchdowns in his lone season in Detroit, averaging 12.3 yards per return.

Jones may share a name with the Kansas City Chiefs' elite defensive lineman, but he'd made just four tackles through almost five full NFL seasons before this game. He showed no hesitation on this one though, absolutely demolishing Roberts, then adding a bit of a flex by standing over him to admire the handiwork.

Punters may not be known for their big hits, but Jones is likely never going to forget this play.
