At the ripe age of 28, the Jets PK is hanging up the old cleats.

Miss a couple of XP's in preseason and this is what happens!!
Could very well have a physical issue

and figured it was time to do something else.

Chandler was "money" for Clemson for 4 years and against top opponents.
"After a freshman year, in which he only made 14 of 22 field goals, he finished with a field goal percentage of 81.7%, missing only one kick in each of his junior and senior years (94%). Catanzaro is the all-time leading scorer in Clemson history with 404 points.
Maybe Robbieballs can explain what happens to such a promising talent between college and the pros.

Over physical. Training camp just started. If he had some physical ailment he would not have kicked in a meaningless preseason game. Have to believe mentally it took a toll on him. Very sad only 28 years old.
He was shook
