Addressing the kicker position through free agency

37 posts in this topic

Here are a few names from NFL.com's free agent list:

"56) Spin the wheel of starting kickers (Rob Bironas, Steven Hauschka, Phil Dawson, Mike Nugent, Jason Hanson): There are too many quality kickers available this offseason. It shouldn't be too hard to find one."

With these names floating around, I think we really need to take upgrading this position into consideration.

A 90%+ kicker would be great. Most of those guys will want $2M-$3M

It is rare for a good kicker to hit the free agent market. If Rob Bironas is out there, pull the trigger. All those other guys are average if I'm not mistaken.

I liked our kicker we picked up late in the season considering we picked him up off the street he will improve. He made 2 out of 3 field goals outside the 45 yard line and can get his fair share of of touchbacks. He is younger than Justin Medlock too. I think he needs competition in camp, but I am more concerned with our punter. . He was atrocious during the middle of the season.

Any stud kickers in the draft? We need a 110% kicker

Phil Dawson was probowl last year. He is older but likely has 3-4 years left. Give Panthers confidence to take some fg

shots

    • Would you rather Montenegro be in NATO or be swallowed up by Russia?  To me that is an easy answer.  and I agree NATO has morphed.  I don't think that is a bad thing.  US does bear more than anyone on their shoulders.  That isn't a bad deal but just a reality IMO.  Only a bad deal really if we engage Russia or have to defend Russia though IMO.  As for the rest of the time....everyone else gets bad deal because they have to spend all the other years involved in everything we get them mixed up in. 
    • Yep, lived in Belmar for just a few months when we first moved out here in '07. Got up to Evergreen as quick as we could. I used to go to just about all the Broncos home games. Company had a suite at Mile High and I was the only employee in the state. Kinda made tickets a shoo-in. Sent through security with Elway a couple of times the season before he became the GM. Honestly don't have anything against the Broncos nor their fans, always had a good time at their games, but fug Aqib Talib. That guy's a piece of poo and that feels like an insult to pieces of poo.
