  • He's on the Eddie Lacy diet, there were better options, we have to see the asking price of course. He has a back issue last I heard, not a good thing for a guy that twists his body every kick.

  • I'd not be overly upset with a vet minimum deal, but I'm hoping they are just testing the waters and doing their due diligence. I really think we should be able to find a good young kicker during the off season. There's plenty of time to bring in as many as possible and sign a few to compete in the mini camps.

  • He missed all of last season with a back issue and missed 6 FGs and a couple of extra points in 2016, the last time he played.

    I don't think I'd hate it if we signed him, but I don't think I'd feel very good about it either. We'd probably be looking for a kicker again in the near future as well because he's 40 years old and now has a recent history of a back issue that kept him out an entire season.

    Gotta be better options I would think.

  • Even with a bad back, he's an upgrade over Walsh. Should they decide to sign him it would be a step in the right direction.

  • I'd be absolutely fine with him, a rookie and the other guy we've got in camp. Get some competition going at the position this summer.

    As long as the guarantees are low, of course. Give him $200K guaranteed and it's a win/win for both sides.

    Wish I was earning $200K this summer!

    Has anyone seen the Twitter posts from the ex Washington kicker? He keeps posting videos of him kicking from 50 yards and tagging the Seahawks in them.

    He missed six FGs in 2016 . . . but that was out of 35 attempts. Janikowski was 28/29 from inside of 50 yards. Five of his misses were from 50+ yards.

    He is the consummate professional. The biggest question mark for him would be passing the physical.

    Seeing as how he's 40 years old and just missed an entire season with a back issue, that's a pretty big question mark IMO.

    Sometimes you need your kicker to make a 53 yard FG. Most NFL kickers have at least a reasonable shot at hitting those. Sounds like Janikowski doesn't really anymore.

    Like I said, gotta be better options. Especially if we don't want to be right back in this same position of needing to find a kicker next off season or the one after that.

    3/8 from 50+ yards is about average for an NFL kicker.

    18 teams made three or fewer FGs of 50+ yards last season. 12 teams had two or fewer. Walsh was 0/1 from 50+ yards.

  • I wish we just resigned Hauschka so we wouldn’t be in this position.

    It could be a solid signing, bring him in and some competition and it could be a win/win.

    So do I but we weren't saying that, his last season here wasn't great by any means. Missed 4 FG's and 6 XP's.

    I think it's a case that the change of scenery did him good.

    I really want a 3 way battle in camp at kicker. With the position being so much about the mental aspect, having one guy win a battle between 3 is going to do wonders for his confidence.

    Have one guy in camp who knows the job is his? He's got too much time to overthink and worry about messing up once it really matters.

  • People conveniently forget that Haush was pretty bad the year before. Signing Walsh was incredibly stupid, we all know that. But it's not like Haush was living up to his "money" name his last season here.

    I hope there's not a lot of guaranteed money in that. I want to see them bring in some serious competition. If this is what their plan is for our kicking team, I'd be thoroughly disappointed. If he can beat some serious competition and earn the spot, then great, but I hope they just don't give him the job.

  • Morris is there to help teach the offense I get that, Janikowski , that has me scratching my head, he may sign for the minimum but I doubt it, with his past injuries and now age I really hope there is little to no guaranteed money and that they bring in a couple UDFA's as well.

  • He is up there in age, but so what?

    I only care if he can kick a FG without choking. My bet is he can do just that, and not miss from within 50 yards. If he can hit a few from more than 50 we have a winner!
