This team is an international embarassment. I was in Europe last week watching some good old SkySport, and they had a fluff piece about a Norwegian bloke who made some YouTube videos of him placekicking trick shots. Absolutely no form or leg strength. They said he "really wanted to play in the NFL". But so far, "only one team has given him a tryout, the New York Jets."
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.
I found this:"Kackert's vertical jump is a very solid 38" that would have had him in the top 5 among running back at the combine, but it's his 27 bench press reps that leaps off the page. 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.
