:sleep: ;)

On what his knee injury was last year in training camp
"I had a partially torn MCL in my kicking leg. As I mentioned, that happened the first day of training camp. I missed all of camp and then I was trying to catch up all during the early part of the season, from the camp that I missed. I felt like it came back and I started playing a lot better towards the end of the year. It was unchartered territory – I had never been injured before. So it was something that was a little difficult to deal with, having to go with an injury."
so maybe he will be healthier/better in 2002

It's really a shame that we lost Matt Turk who has been consistently good and better than Mark Royals because of a $25K gap in negotitations.

It wasn't merely a $25K difference. Miami wanted to sign Turk to a $750K veteran contract that would only $450K against the cap.

This is the contract that Royals signed. It's a one year deal. But from what I've read, Turk also rejected a three-year deal from the Phins.

Turk was really solid last year. But he's a punter. And punters can be replaced.

Punters are a dime a dozen in the NFL. Sh*t, if I was tall enough I would punt for the phins. (5'7)
