Nah I'm good
2nd most accurate kicker in NFL history. I’d take a flyer on him. Can’t be worse than what’s in that position at the moment.
One of the most accurate kickers in NFL history.
He’s got back problems. Which is why he went from one of leagues best to cut
Plus he will command millions.
Yep, and since the Injury he hasn't been ol reliable.
Miami didn't axe Parkey to pick up a similar contract.
I’m not. Sign him.
It's a no-brainer.
If we wanted to pay a kicker we would’ve paid Parkey
If we are looking to sign a kicker I'd go for Matt McCrane. Very solid mechanics, perfect alignment, and smooth swing, which are always the aspects I evaluate first.
He was extremely accurate in college and got drafted by the Cardinals, but they released him in favor of the incumbent Dawson, despite Dawson's lousy season last year and poor showing this preseason.
I think posters in this thread are confusing Dan Bailey today with the one they remember from earlier in his career. One he got the back injury those kicks are sailing errantly smack off the foot, far too often. Still young enough to heal but back problems with kickers can be like back problems with golfers...never the same.
Didn’t our kicker make 2 55+ yd kicks this preseason?
Back problems and coming off a 75% season. Plus with his name he is going to get a decent contract. There are better, cheaper options available.
Bailey of today is not Bailey of yesterday.
Bailey had a groin injury last year, I can’t speak about his back though.
