    I think they want to get a look at Hanson placing it inside the 20, something that Baugher showed some inconsistency with. Go Preseason Game 4 Tryouts!

    Maybe Josh Miller is waiting in the wings? Or Ken Walter?

    Plus I supposed there will be no easier shadow roster position then Baugher. If there is any sign of Hansen slipping we could pick up Baugher in a heartbeat. Really makes you think about that clerical error they made with Sauerbrun.

    they have had a whole peseason to evaluate baugher, i guess they arent sold on him, they have been trying out different punters, putting claims on others so this shouldnt come as a surprise

    Don't be surprised if Miller is opening day kicker.

    Re: Baugher Waived. Hansen signed.

    I guess Belichick decided he wasn't ready to go with a rookie punter, and wanted someone with experience.

    Hanson was the guy who cut his leg with an axe a few years ago. Jack Del Rio had a tree stump with an axe installed in the lockerroom, and players could take swipes. It was supposed to be a motivator, a metaphor for "chopping wood". Hanson took a swing and missed, hitting his leg instead. He ended up going on IR for the year.

    Umm . . . I hope you mean punter. If Miller is the Pats' opening day kicker, we're in for a long season. :)

    Another Marshall guy, too. He should know Randy.

    Would not be surpirsed if this is a 1 day tryout for Hansen under game pressure. If he struggles I can see him being released tomorrow and Baugher brought back.

    Re: Baugher Waived. Hansen signed.

    Judging from the quote from Baugher's agent in Reiss report, there is no ill will. Baugher seems perfectly happy being on the PS as an insurance policy and biding his time.

    I wonder if they pay Baugher more than PS pay, like they did with Billy Yates when he was on the PS, to keep him as a backup without him counting on the roster.

    Re: Baugher Waived. Hansen signed.

    Just to make it clear: at the moment, Baugher is not a Patriot. He might be signed to the PS early next week, but, right now, any other team that wants him can have him.

    Re: Baugher Waived. Hansen signed.

    Looking at Hanson's stats, something's troubling. 5 of his last 238 punts (1/47.6 punts from 2004-2006) have been returned for touchdowns. This compares to 2/190 for Josh Miller over the same period (and 4/747 for Miller's career).
    Initially I thought it could be related to Jacksonville's special teams or so I thought but looking at Josh Scobee's kickoff numbers over the same period which is the best comparison for the same special teams unit, he had none of his last 225 kickoffs (over the same period) returned for touchdowns.

    This compares to
    Dirk Johnson PHL 1/189
    Jason Baker CAR 1/224
    Jeff Feagles NYG 1/224
    Craig Hentrich TEN 1/239
    Derrick Frost WAS 0/242

    Wow I am as stunned as everyone else. I don't know too much about Hanson but I never saw Baugher being released coming.

    Yeah, I've been trying not to think about that, it makes my head hurt. A bizarre brain lapse for such a smart front office.
