2008 Free Agency Page Notes: Star rating is out of five.
Age listing is as of Sept. 11, the first day of the 2008 regular season.
If I missed a signing or a free agent, please let me know. There are so many players on the market I may have missed someone.
Josh Brown, K, Seahawks. Age: 29. Signed with Rams (5 years, $14.2 million)
Josh Brown hits multiple 50-yarders every year. He's one of the top kickers in the league.
Rob Bironas (RFA), K, Titans. Age: 30. Re-signed with Titans (1 year, $1.417 million)
Rob "My" Bironas was 4-of-5 from beyond 50 yards and set an NFL record for eight field goals in a single game. You can't get much better than that.
Jason Elam, K, Broncos. Age: 38. Signed with Falcons (4 years, $9 million)
I have Jason Elam listed as a 4-star kicker because of his age. His days of nailing 50-yard field goals might be over.
Taylor Mehlhaff, K, Saints. Age: 23.
Good job by the Saints cutting a very promising kicker in favor of a has-been bum (Martin Gramatica). I suspect they'll regret this decision by October.
Lawrence Tynes, K, Giants. Age: 30. Re-signed with Giants (5 years, $7 million).
I was never a big fan of Lawrence Tynes' until he nailed the decisive field goal in the NFC Championship Game. The Giants have to keep him.
@WelshBear2 Let's be fair guys. Walter has had a slow news week. He wanted something for clickbait. And if I'm wrong and he actually believes what he wrote. Wow, I'm gonna have to reassess me looking at his site. It's only a 3 hour drive for Oakland fans. There's never been a professional team in Vegas before. SO stating it'll be empty is silly. You have zero stats to compare it too.
