    Jets try out You Tube sensation trick shot kicker

    Looks like Tanny is scouring the interwebz for talent.

    STOCKHOLM - A Norwegian whose Youtube clip of spectacular trick shots has been watched over half a million times could be on the verge of a National Football League (NFL) contract as a kicker.

    The video caught the attention of professional teams in the United States, and Norwegian state broadcaster NRK has reported that its star, Havard Rugland, had a tryout for the NFL's New York Jets this week.

    "It went well," Rugland told NRK. "They tested me on field goals and kickoffs. Obviously you feel a little more pressure here, but I stayed pretty calm."

    The video shows the 27-year-old performing some outrageous tricks and kicks, from nailing 60-yard field goals to soccer-style scissor kicks and volleys with American footballs.

    Made by Rugland, his brother and some friends, the video has spread rapidly on the Internet, clocking up over half a million hits and garnering interest from three U.S. colleges and the Jets.

    Rugland has no prior American football experience but kicking coach Michael Husted says that if he continues to develop, he could reach the NFL.

    "Havard has incredible talent as a kicker," Husted, who played nine seasons as an NFL kicker, told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper. "He has a cannon for a leg. As he continues to refine his technique, he could be one of the strongest kickers in the NFL."

    I'm not embarrassed in the least at an attempt to contribute. So I missed a thread...BFD.

    What have YOU ever contributed besides "dump" and "ignore"?

    As much as I hate Pats and their fans. Just because someone trolls, doesn't mean all their post are not informative. I've seen some threads where this dude makes good points and all anyone says is "STFU TROLL" .

    ..But there are some other times when he just posts to annoy people lol
