Sea bass is not returning to the Raiders for the '18 season..... kick the tires on him ?

 

He ended last season with a back injury, and as a 17 year veteran won't be cheap for a team that can barely afford to put a better offensive line in front of Eli Manning.

I still dont get how there isnt a player who can both punt and kick. Id imagine most teams would love the extra roster spot

I was thinking of that today- especially since with the new rules punts happen only north of the 50 and field goals south of the 35, plus the touchback and the 2 point conversion. All this has cut the workload in half so youd think you could find the Don Chandler of this generation.

True, but if you think about it, punting defenses are trying to go after the punter whereas fg/extra point defenses are jumping up trying to block the actual ball. How many roughing the kicker penalties have you seen on the kicker as opposed to the punter? My point is, if you had a hybrid guy, you'd still have to carry 2 in case the kicker/punter got hurt punting because now you don't have a kicker for extra points or f/g's. But yeah, all they do is kick, what's the difference if it's a punt or a f/g?

I've been saying it for a long time, the CFL doesnt have a designated kicker and punter, they are just the same player.

 

Surprised the NFL hasnt tried to recruit a few of the guys up here since they can routinely punt and kick the ball 60+ yards.

Isn't the air thinner up there?
