I got a hunch this is the year that Mason gets some competition drafted. They can take another swing next year then if needed. Is there anyone worth a 6/7?

Think we'll get more bang for the buck using picks on DL, OL, WR and/or LB's in the late rounds than a kicker. A couple who may get drafted, Borregales from Miami (decent leg, pretty accurate) and Kessman (Pitt) (big leg, not quite as accurate). I think others are probably FA's.

I don't think the Packers should use a draft pick to bring in competition for Crosby. An undrafted free agent, sure.

They can find a better kicker than Crosby somewhere working on a used car lot and pay him league minimum. :rolleyes:

I'd do it. I'd be like a 2fer. I can long snap and did for punts, but I was the best kicker we had, so someone else did for extra points so I could kick. I'd play for the minimum.

Problem solved, cap savings to boot. Let’s go get us a 3 million dollar free agent CB to be the sacrificial lamb next year. Whoever takes that position is going to be targeted early and often. I’d rather it be a veteran than some poor sap rookie.

if it's any consolation, Rob Davis even complimented by snapping ability just a couple years ago, though I have to say, anything past 35 yards was probably a 70-30 proposition and on the bad side and that was 25+ years ago LOL and off those little rubber blocks they let you use in high school.

Lol, I was old school straight on. The Gogolak’s were still freakish. I hit the cross bar once from 50. You were definitely better than me it sounds like.

Ha, I was the best in a school where nobody could kick LOL. I think I'd tear a hammy just visualizing a FG these days.

I think the Packers should give Mason Crosby more money and a longer contract :D:D:D:D. Sorry Captain, I couldn't resist.

That might be difficult to achieve considering the cap situation the Packers are currently in ;)

I am not a fan of drafting a kicker unless you have no kicker. Until then, its UDFA or FA competition for me.
