Franchising NFL Kickers

This post refers to grantland.com

Bill Barnwell on franchising kickers:

The reality is that kickers just aren’t consistent from year to year. If kicking were a consistent skill, guys who are scary accurate in one season would also be at the top of the leaderboards the following season. Research has shown that not to be the case.

Barnwell’s article touches on what I tweeted about a week or so ago. Apparently actually franchising kickers is as crazy as it sounds.
