    Falcons kicker Todd Peterson is a free agent, unestablished and being sought by few other than the Falcons. But when I watched him kick on Sunday Fox Football purgatory I saw good things, including against us.
    Has anyone heard anything about this kid seeking offers?

    I tweaked your quote a little ;)

    I read this morning that the Falcons are trying to get him to re-sign but I forget where I read it.

    Could be a good option. His stats for the last 3 years aren't bad at all. 2003 made 80.0 percent, 2004 made 81.8 percent and last year 2005 made 92.0 percent (mostly in a dome). Only 2 things worry me; his age (36) I wouldn't want to sign him for anymore then 2 years tops and in 2002 he played in Pittsburgh and made only 57.1 percent of his kicks.

    Yeah but everyone kicks like a jello-legged school girl in Pittsburgh.

    Last report was the Falcons were pushing to re-sign him and he looks like he will return there.

    If the Pats were to sign Peterson, they probably would have to carry a kickoff specialist for non-FG and PAT attempts.

    He is a good K though.

    I think so also, but thought I would see how this guy is in everyone elses ideas. Didn't know he was in the mid 30's.

    For the record, and because the subject confused me momentarily:

    K = Kicker
    KR = Kick Returner

    Petersen is horrible, horrible horrible. Steelers got rid of him in midseason for a guy that was working on a farm at the time.
