    Hmm, I did some brief research and it turns out he's actually pretty good. lol.

    I was going to send my Mom out for a tryout if Turk was coming back.

    Leg probably got tired.

    Rams were punting every 2 or 3 minutes, I would imagine.

    Seriously though, I don't know.

    Just glad we aren't heading into OTAs or camp without a punter signed. Now we need to wrap up a kicker, then draft Jacoby Jones' replacement and I'll be happy with Special Teams again.

    I sure hope that is for minimum money. I want to keep those comp picks next year! Plus, we still have Hartman on the roster, so this guy may only play the first 3 games, unless he beats him out in camp.
