[QUOTE=Megalomaniac;3546239]i think it would be more of a "let them compete and battle for the job." then again, they couldn't sign rackers until feely got signed, so maybe they were just waiting for that...[/QUOTE]
Yea, that was probably was their plan. I wonder how much Rackers is going to want if he wouldn't take 2M from the Cards? I hope we don't break have to break the bank for him.
wow sign this beast...he's always one of the first kickers to go in fantasy, and I've liked him ever since the pro bowl in '06 (i believe) when he blew away the others in the pro-skills kicking competition
[QUOTE=sg3;3546300]so it turns out we probably upgrade the K position too
In all seriousness, this might end up the best move we make this offseason if we were to make it. He's a really, really good kicker. He also does kickoffs, and has had some really good seasons there too.
Plus we're trying to be more badass as a team and stuff....
Player News (last updated: April 2, 2010)
News: Arizona signed Jay Feely on Friday, so Rackers won't return to the Cardinals, the team's official site reports.
Spin: The knocks on Rackers are that he's not very dependable on long kicks and pressure attempts. He also seemed to be seeking more money than the Cardinals were willing to spend. He'll catch on somewhere, because he made 16 of his 17 field goal tries during the 2009 regular season, and 25 of his 28 tries in 2008.

Swapping mediocre kickers (if he signs with us). No big deal.
I find it funny in the above post that Rackers wasn't happy with Arizona's deal $ wise, and gave Feely 2 yr, $4.5 million. Well guess what, the Jets were offering Feely less than that, so whose to say they're going to give Rackers $3 million a year, which is what I'm guessing it would take to sign him here if he wouldn't take what Feely took.
Yeah, he was 16 of 17 last year, and he also got hurt. And he also kicked in a controlled enviornment.
Its average K for average K swap. Hopefully, if we sign Rackers, he just doesn't choke in a December Week 15 game or the AFC Championship.
