Rams re-sign K Zuerlein

pjcas18 : 3/14/2017 2:41 pm
he had been rumored to be among the options for NYG.

I think Dan Carpenter is maybe the best option of the veteran kickers.

Or there is always the reserve futures guy they signed in January (Aldrick Rosas)

What about Folk?

Has he signed somewhere? If not, we could do worse

Carpenter had been great until last year, when he was kind of a disaster.

Folk and Carpenter may both be considered b/c both have experience kicking outdoors.

I was just going by one of the beat writers who had a tweet in the past couple days that mentioned Rosas, but also suggested Zuerlein and Carpenter as veteran options.
Too bad

He would have been a good addition, and worth paying at the high end of the kicker market.
having watched Zeurlein with the Rams in St. Louis...  
Mike in St. Louis : 3/14/2017 3:00 pm : link
all I can say is thank you he isn't available for us to sign...there has to be better out there...
ThatLimerickGuy : 3/14/2017 3:04 pm : link
Made a big push to sign him but just didn't work out.

Do the Giants really like Rosas as a legitimate option for the kicking job? I like this kid a lot and feel like he could be our kicker for the next decade. I hope they don't bring in a veteran like Carpenter and keep him over Rosas if Rosas outperforms him.
Feagles loves Rosas

For what it's worth I trust this man when it comes to special teams
Some vet seems to be cut every year after preseason  
rasbutant : 3/14/2017 4:45 pm : link
anyone know the teams that have two good kickers on the roster?
Time to find a young

Cheaper option. They have always seem to find them the. Let them go somewhere else.
How about the draft? Anyone worth taking say 6th 7th round?

Carpenter is garbage.

I watch the Bills a lot because my wife is a Bills fan from western New York.

NOBODY has missed more extra points in the last few years than Carpenter. He's also missed some very important field goals. And you never know when he's going to screw up a kick-off either.

The Bills should have cut him at this time last year but did not do it and they regretted it. This year they finally did it.

I'd rather take a chance with a rookie than sign Carpenter. He is not an NFL quality kicker.

It was clear that Aldrick’s kicking ability was up there at an elite level.Craig Howard continued his high praise, with a comparison to another elite kicker he coached.

“I’ve coached Jeff Chandler, who kicked for the San Francisco 49ers… Chandler was the all-time leading scorer in Florida Gators history… Aldrick Rosas is a lot better kicker than the guy that I knew, I coached, that become the all-time leading scorer in Florida, went to the 49ers, then the Washington Redskins. This guy’s got a bright future, you know.”
