PK Cole Tracy to try out with the Saints and the Packers
Interesting.

quote:

Tracy will try out with the Green Bay Packers and the New Orleans Saints during their mini-camps, Tracy told The Advocate Sunday afternoon.

Tracy said he will try out with the Packers this upcoming weekend, and then will try out with the Saints in New Orleans the following weekend.

Mini-camps tend to last three days, and players try out to earn a contract with the team as an undrafted free agent.

Only two placekickers were selected in the 2019 NFL draft, and both were selected in the fifth round: Utah's Matt Gay (No. 145 overall) and Oklahoma's Austin Seibert (No. 170).

He’s quite good but it’s not like he’s going to become our kicker. Is this just a showcase kind of thing?

So Green Bay it is. CSP hates LSU players.

Ugh ! Little chance here. Packers have Mason Crosby, 80% career FG. Tracy’s weekness is outside the 50. That can improve with some work in the weight room. Youngster will have a career somewhere in the NFL.

Maybe the saints are giving him some experience with the NFL to give him a hand later and see if he can develop.

He's got ice in his veins and that's hard to teach that. Maybe they are doing him a favor.

You also never know if you kicker goes down what your backup plan is. They get a feel for the guy and he's accurate as shite.

Better than a long leg who can't hot the side of the barn (Wade Richey SP?) Comes to mind.

Crosby had an abysmal game or two last year, and is older. Also, having someone else in camp to compete is never a bad thing. It can help you network with other teams to get insight. John Harbaugh tipped Payton off about Lutz when they had Tucker. No reason we couldn’t do the same if Tracy is legit to leverage it for info on other players that will be cut.

He would've almost assuredly won that playoff game for Da Bears.

The saints already have the best kicker in the league and just gave him a long term contract. It doesn’t matter what school this dude is from.

Isn’t Lutz already a great kicker?

re: PK Cole Tracy to try out with the Saints and the Packers
This is odd. Lutz is a top kicker in the league now. I guess Payton still has kicker nightmares and can’t be too cautious.

Gotta be. Or just to have a PK you've seen in person in case Lutz gets a leg or a groin.

Lutz might get a leg or a groin. Good to have some guys on standby

Feels like Payton doing someone a favor here imo.

We have our kicker locked up so of course Tracy doesn’t have a chance with the Saints.

Cole Tracy worked with Morten Anderson before the draft, wouldn't be surprised if he gave the Saints a call.

I mean didn’t we get Lutz because Baltimore already had Tucker? This seems like due diligence/ injury insurance
