  1. Wow this is huge. Precursor to getting fleeced by Cousins for some more guaranteed money?

  2. Special teams had some big let downs last season. I am sorry we had to have someone leave before we change something up but Ok. This is at least something. We had a killer punter or else our special teams are just so so.
