Shortly after we learned that Bryan Anger is out as the punter for the Buccaneers, word broke about the player who will be replacing him in Tampa.

According to multiple reports, Bradley Pinion will be signing a four-year deal with the team.

Pinion was a fifth-round pick of the 49ers and has spent the last four seasons handling the punting duties for the team. Pinion’s averaged 43.7 yards per kick with a net of 40 yards over his pro career. He also handled kickoffs for the Niners for most of his time with the team.

There’s no word on the financial terms of Pinion’s deal. Anger was set to make $3 million this season.

  1. This is great news! Pinion was horrible..,, another in a seemingly endless list of Trent Baalke mistakes. Only Baalke could use a 5th round pick on a punter who turned out to be a better kick off guy then a punter.

    The Baalke stench is slowly going away… one mistake after another.

  2. Never heard of the guy….but going by ehsguy72’s comments looks like our run on crappy kickers continues down in the Bay!

  3. I remember some sports writers criticized the front office for spending a fifth round pick on a punter, but at that time punter Andy Lee was not doing well and they traded him for a draft pick after drafting Pinion, and they also got rid of Lee’s big (for a punter) salary. Pinion is a good punter and he has a strong leg. However, he is not consistent enough, and he can occasionally make a bad punt. That is probably the reason why his average is only 43 yards per punt. His leg is stronger than that.
