Default Vanderjagt kicked to the curb.

Quote:
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys released Mike Vanderjagt on Monday, apparently tired of his inability to live up to his reputation as the most accurate kicker in league history. Martin Gramatica was signed as his replacement.

The Cowboys gave Vanderjagt a $2.5 million bonus as part of a three-year, $5.4 million contract to shore up a position coach Bill Parcells felt cost the team three wins last season.

Yes... If he is kicking from inside the 20.

I honestly dont know if Vanderjagt can even kick the ball 50 yds on a kickoff.

He barely makes it on kickoffs. He's always been a liability when it comes to that. Didn't Indy carry 2 kickers?

Yea & Dallas had to for the first 2 games (Suisham) until Parcells told Vanderjagt to either kickoff or get cut.

Maybe Vanderjagt hates the Cowboys like the rest of America. This was his little way of sticking it to them.
