Tuesday tryout. RT @RavensInsider: Cardinals tried out kicker Josh Brown

https://twitter.com/mikejurecki

Name should be familiar to our posters, as Brown kicked for the Rams for 4 years from 2008 in.

This could mean something or it could mean nothing. We'll just have to wait and see.

I think it would be too soon to bail on Feely. He missed his last 2 FGs it happens. Add on the fact that one of them was supposedly tipped and I'd give Feely a little bit longer leash than 2 consecutive misses.

Brown is an absolute beast from 50+ yards though.

I rather see them go look for a young franchise kicker at the end of the year but I don't think that will happen.

We used a 5th rounder on a FB two years ago and win games with special teams and defense.

I'm confident we'd spend a 6th or 7th rounder on a young leg.

I don't think Whiz has faith in young kickers after Mike Barr. He is willing to bring in a new kicker after Feeley missed a handful of kicks which tells me that he is not willing to be patient with a young kicker.

By beast you mean?? He was 0-2 from 50+ last year and is 22/36 for his career from 50+.

Gould and Bironas would be beasts from 50+ IMO, 10/13 and 16/23 for their careers respectively.

Barr was a punter and was 29 in his only NFL season.

Maybe beast was too strong a word but take away last year and he was 15/19 from 50+ for the Rams in 3 three seasons.

He's 28/43 lifetime btw

Feely is 14/26. That's about 12% less success.

We should bring back Billy G... Has his knee healed yet?

According to whom?

PFR has him at 22/36 from 50+ for his career.

Also, I think Brown has signed with the Jets.

Jets cut him in the preseason.

That would explain why his NFL.com page still has him as a member of the Jets.

You are right. For some reason PFR did not have the splits of his 2009 year.

Until Buffalo all we heard was about Feely's consecutive streak. A few misses later they're considering a tryout? Talk about instilling confidence. From 61 yards to a dog. What a joke.
