Fan Mailbag: Competition At Kicker?
Jun 1, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Washington Redskins
Question: How come the team is so confident in two kickers--Graham Gano and Justin Medlock--that are so inexperienced? Is there any possibility that the team signs a veteran All-Pro caliber kicker, such as Shayne Graham? -- Jason A. Gary: Good question.
Medlock hit almost 90% of his field goals last year in Toronto (CFL)including 7 of 7 in one game. He also handled their punting (120 punts good for 3rd in net in CFL)so he's a long way from a rookie!!He can be a machine when he's in his groove.
