And the winner of the Buccaneers’ kicking sweepstakes is: a former Tampa Bay kicker.
Patrick Murray is back. The Bucs signed him today, and fans hope he can make us forget about Nick Folk and Roberto Aguayo.
You remember this guy, right? Sure, you do. He was the Bucs’ kicker three years ago. And he was pretty good. He made 20-of-24 field goals, and connected on all of his extra points (keeping in mind PAT’s were much shorter back then.)
Why did the Bucs get rid of him? He was injured for most of 2015, and they let him go. Cleveland picked up him, but he got hurt again after just two games last year.
All I want is for Murray to kick the ball through the uprights on a regular basis. Doing that would ease the nerves of fans like me nervous every time the Buccaneers line up for a field goal or an extra point.
That’s all, Folk.
