    Here's an even weirder one from the Guardian newspaper in Britain. According to this article our braintrust has been looking at a guy who does kicking tricks in Norway.

    Tannenbaum can't go soon enough. I'm tired of his infatuation with marginal PS type players.

    Too bad that in the video they're talking about he's kicking FG's from 60 yards away. So you're "no leg strength" comment is BS.

    btw, just for info sake, in that video of Kackert? The QB handing him the ball is none other than Ricky Ray.

    There's a reason they're in the CFL and not the NFL......

    CFL Players > NCAA DII and DIII players, and the majority of DI Players.

    You can find under the radar guys in the CFL and it is for sure a place to look. Jerrell Freeman from Indy, something like 5th in the league in tackles came from there not long ago.

    Jets should pursue Chris Williams slot receiver and kick returner from Hamilton.

    Always turning over rocks, that Tannenbaum.

    Even Canadian rocks!

    He'll find us a better version of Danny Woodhead before he leaves.

    Then sign him to a $39M, 5 year contract before Woody finally takes away his keys to the building.

Those numbers would've been the top amongst running backs at the combine and with 4.43 speed, Kackert is by no means slow.

    Watching the highlights you can't help but to love Kackert. What strikes me most in his highlights is the elite balance he displays and the strength that goes with it. He clearly puts his heart into the game and plays with a chip on his shoulder similar to that of MJD. However, the question begs why a player like Chad Kackert would go undrafted."

    Whether Jets sign Kackert or not...Jets are looking for an alternative to Shonn Greene, to complement Powell.
