As everyone knows I've been searching high an low for a new kicker my search started 10 minutes ago and I found him on the front page of Yahoo

The compilation exploded across the Internet and currently has nearly one million views. Even some NFL scouts took notice. And, to say the least, they were impressed.
So the scouts asked kicking coach and former NFLer Michael Husted to work with Rugland in San Diego. After some training Rugland, who has never played American football, recently had a tryout with the New York Jets.
"It went well," Rugland told Norwegian state broadcaster NRK. "They tested me on field goals and kickoffs. Obviously you feel a little more pressure here, but I stayed pretty calm."
It takes only one viewing of the video to see that Rugland has some serious potential. In fact, Husted even compared him to Sebastian Janikowski of the Oakland Raiders.
"Havard has incredible talent as a kicker," Husted told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. "He has a cannon for a leg. As he continues to refine his technique, he could be one of the strongest kickers in the NFL."

We won't get him, JR will never pay a kicker big money ever again.

We are all clear that the video is obviously fake, right?

Well at least we know he can kick with the wind. The trees in the background were blowing pretty hard. He also seems to have an understanding of how to use the balls shape and curves to maneuver through the air. Ain't getting my hopes up.

Obviously impressive, but he doesn't have 300 lb man children running at him or any pressure at all.

Draft a freaking decent kicker.
