Several punters get their tires kicked on Thursday

The bulk of the on-site workouts for free-agent players occur on Tuesday of each week.  This week, for example, 53 men worked out for teams on the same day Terrell Owens worked out for none.

But workouts can happen on other days of the week; on Thursday, four punters worked out for four different teams.

Per a league source, the Ravens looked at Glenn Pakulak, the Cowboys eyeballed Chris Jones, the Saints brought in Jeremy Kapinos, and the Chargers checked out Ben Graham.

The only other team to engage in workouts on Thursday was the Raiders, who brought in running back Stafon Johnson, running back Lonyae Miller, and defensive back Brian Williams.  Oakland’s interest in running backs could be a sign that the Raiders are concerned that Darren McFadden won’t be able to play next Sunday, after the Raiders emerge from their bye.

    Maybe T.O. should start punting.

    the chargers could use players at every position. I think we should sign TO. I al;so think they should sign a new qb. All rivers is doing is throwing interception this year.

    Go Norv!

    Odd that the Ravens would look at a punter. Their punting on MNF was the best I’ve seen in a long time.

    Of all the bone headed decisions that the Raiders have made over the years including giving away 1st rounders like they are Halloween candy and they don’t bring in Tiki for a look???

    I’m the biggest Tiki apologist that any of you will ever see. Now, even I am starting to think something is wrong with him.

    Definitely odd the Ravens worked out a punter, Koch is one of the best in the league. I haven’t heard anything about him being hurt this week.

    The Ravens bring in left footed punters for a “work out” before facing a left footed punter on Sunday. Pakulak is a lefty. So is Cardinals punter Ben Graham.

    Just smart football.

    My bad – I meant former Raven Dave Zastudil is a lefty.

    Theres no way the Ravens are actually looking into this punter right now unless Koch is injured…Koch has been one of the best punters in the league the past 3 years hands down!

    In case anyone outside Jacksonville didn’t notice, Matt Turk is available.

    The Saints are facing the Rams this week and the Rams punter Donnie Jones is left footed. So is Kapinos. They wanted to practice catching punts from a left-footer because the balls spins differently.

    the ravens brought in a punter because they are facing a left footed punter this week and wanted the return guys to get used to it (the ball spins the other way). no challenge to koch.

    i think that should be updated in the article…
