Packers sign J.K. Scott, Hunter Bradley

The Packers released punter Justin Vogel on Friday in a move that came as no surprise after they drafted a punter in the fifth round of the draft last week.

They got that new punter’s contract done on Friday as well. The team announced that J.K. Scott has agreed to a four-year deal with the team.

Scott led the nation in gross punting average during his freshman year at Alabama and continued to boot the ball well throughout his four years with the Crimson Tide. He also handled kickoff duties during the 2017 season.

Scott figures to spend a lot of time this offseason working with long snapper Hunter Bradley, a seventh-round pick who also signed on Friday. Bradley played college ball at Mississippi State.

  1. A good long snapper can have a fifteen year career, make more money than most of his friends, avoid major injuries, and see first-hand some of the most exciting games ever played.

    It’s a good gig if you can get it.

  2. I think we went through 3 long snappers last year. Drafting a long snapper in the 7th round, with 10 other draft picks, makes more sense than most think. Will probably still be with the team thru 2 contract extensions.

  3. Id Rodgers gets injured again this year, he’ll punt more in one year than he did in four at Alabama.

  4. Well at least he can feel like he is home in his parents basement.

    “Though the team upgraded its entire training facility in 2013, the weight room still sort of looks like your local rec center. Nondescript white walls spill into a beige carpet, giving the whole place a sort of “mom’s basement” feel. “

    You are far too deep in this trolling thing. Might be time to step back.

    What? Needless fight-picking about furniture, and no mention of the bleachers? Your minions will think you’re going velveeta-soft in the head.

  8. Well, it sounds like they’ve finally got the missing pieces to the puzzle they just couldn’t solve the past few years. A great punter might get the ball downed inside the 5 every time, but if that defense doesn’t change all it means is 95 yards at a time added to the other teams’ stats. Hopefully all those corners can help out a little.
