I'd bring back Turk for nothing more than to maintain Rackers' chemistry.

Agreed, there isn't likely to be a major undiscovered punting talent lurking in the free agency bin.

Default Re: FA Punters availible

i mentioned the importance of a holder elsewhere, but unless he's able to set it up on a magical 70 yard tee, there is no way i take turk back. he had his moments as a texan, but it's 2 years past time for turk to call it a career.

i need to watch some replays on the candidates however, bidwell is the only name i really recognize and if i remember right he's on the same decline.

i went to some of the indoor practices last year though and he was kinda like the grandpa of the team...good chemistry with the players I'm sure they'd love to have him back, id just rather sign a better player.

His punt average decreased 3 yards between 2008 and 2010, but his net average actually increased (by .1 yard). I'd give him a shot.

Not Turk though. He was just awful with the Jags. His net average went down 4 yard between last year and this year. I think that's a pretty big drop in just one season.

Their stats for their last year:

Josh Bidwell: 41.7 punt avg, 20.0% within 20 (2010)

Matt Turk: 39.7 punt avg, 25.9% within 20 (2011)

Matt Dodge: 44.8 punt avg, 27.8% within 20 (2010)

Glenn Pakulak:38.3 punt avg, 30.8% within 20 (2009)

Robert Malone:41.5 punt avg, 32.7% within 20 in 2010(only 1 game in 2011)

Ricky Schmitt (K) no punting stats in the NFL. Has not accrued stats since 2009.

Ken Parrish: no punting stats in NFL. 40.7 yards avg in college

Daniel Power: couldn't find stats on him.

I would take Dodge. He has a big leg and can kick 44.8 which is big. He had one bad punt in NY, the one to Desean Jackson that cost him his job.He may be the best available.

Default Re: FA Punters availible

For all we know, he might be on crutches just to take precaution.

Is there any word on the preliminary assessment yet? I haven't seen anything.

I'm hoping he hyper-extended it and it's swollen. I've dislocated my knee on two different situations, back in college, and I can tell you that you go down like someone SHOT you in the knee and you just crumple to the ground with no concern except "God, please STOP IT FROM HURTING!" You think "Maybe I have blown the knee, maybe I've broken something."

But a dislocation and/or hyper-extension can also just have stretched the ligaments and tendons and you have swelling and lack of full mobility in it for the next few days.

I'm hoping that this is the case, and he gets the rest he needs.
