well, he was cut nearly a year after publishing an open letter to a Maryland politician. I would rank that as his biggest distraction.
But I agree - he was a very good punter and his outspoken nature probably had much to do with being cut.
I think you're misunderstanding what I said. He was replaced by a punter that was more efficient and cheaper, and then was cut by the raiders. I'm just saying it's not like the guy hadn't been regressing unlike Rhodes.
