  • He was in camp last year.

    Got it off of Ourlads ... I'm sure other outlets will have it soon.

    Interested to see if Hauschka re-signs.

  • I interpret this as Pete staying true to his "always compete" mantra. He wants even the specialists to feel like they have to earn their job every season.

    ..except for Jon Ryan. He gets a "competition-free pass" and deservedly so.

    I'm guessing we'd have to know what kind of contract he signed, but I'd assume he's just being brought in for competition/insurance.

    I like Hauschka, but I really find myself longing for a guy who can boot 'em with distance like Zuerlein

  • I knew that name sounded familiar. Not a bad summer job for Wiggs. Gets to hang out with NFL players, make a few bucks, and then look for a real job in the fall.

    I hear ya; I thought one time was an abberation, but the bad punts kept happening. Both games. He's gotta figure this out or he's gone.

    I have to think it was just a fluke, 'cause he's been so money every other time. I hope it is...

  • I remember reading up on him last year when he was brought in, he has got a huge leg, just needs to become more accurate.

  • Want a reminder that it's the offseason? RANDOM KICKER YOUTUBE VIDEO TIME!



    That's pretty damn impressive! If he's worked on his apparent accuracy issues, we might have that monster leg that would give us the luxury of attempting some 50+ yarders. I love Hauschka's consistency but I'd love it if Wiggs could step up and legitimately challenge him in camp. I think the team thinks he has a chance, hence them bringing him in for a look when Hausch went down after the WAS game and now signing him heading into the offseason.

    Yup, it is. Now if we can only get opposing teams to not rush him while he's kicking.. championship.

  • Given Hauschka is a FA and looking for a big contract having Wiggs here is great insurance. Wiggs has a strong accurate live leg and could become an NFC rival to Minnie's Legatron. Am good with competition for the job but having a K who can possibly kick the really long FG is a plus so long as he is accurate with the shorter ones.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.

    What a special magical year!

  • You know it's the off season when a thread about the signing of a 3rd string kicker is two pages long.

  • Except I give it at least a 50-50 shot he winds up our first string kicker.

    Hahaha! Isn't Jon Ryan the best punter in the NFL right now too? Have you seen Jon Ryan on the Real Rob Report? He is frickin JACKED! Definitely the strongest punter in the league (upper body wise).
