Actually a surprise camp signing. Why sign him when Jones is guaranteed a check this year. I could see signing a kicker.
Just a camp leg.
Also a support to create competition on the kicker's side of the field. You just can't have two guys standing around kicking the ball 8 hours a day. Your leg would be damaged after one training camp.
They will also have snappers and ball boys to support the kicking specialists and kicking sessions. I wouldn't worry about it. This isn't something they are targeting to get Jones off the roster.
But....if this kid kicks his leg off and starts consistently booming all of his punts 70+ yards then we have got something here for the pre-season to consider.
So camp body first, let's see if there is additional value second.
