Would it be stupid to offer a draft pick (mid round) for an established solid kicker?


Recommended Posts

I'm just curious on thoughts but would it be a dimwit move to offer a mid round draft pick to a team for a good established kicker? Would a team even consider this? I guess it would then put that team into kicker jeopardy as we are and that would be a dumb move on their behalf but it would net that team a decent defat pick like say a 4th rounder? Just curious on thoughts because as I see it we will be consistently leaving points off the board with the types of kickers we are bringing in. As much as I couldn't stand Gano I'm now eating crow saying I wish he was back. Good kickers are apparently very hard to find. I wonder what the 80's Bears Kevin Butler is doing these days?

I'd think to have a position that could potentially locked up for 10-15 years of consistent football would be worth a 3rd or 4th round pick.  Think of how many points that position produces every year.

I agree. Kickers are picked on so much but damn those guys are absolutely vital and decide so many things when the score is close

Who would trade their starting kicker right now? Much less for a 4th. We screwd the pooch with Gano and Butker. Its one of the reasons why Hurney isn't here. Nothing we can do about it till next off season.🤷‍♂️

Very true, I guess it was just wishful thinking on my part. And yep Gano or Butker sure do look like nice options these days don't they! I admit I was on the Gano hate train and am now eating my words.
