Default Kicker gone already.

Grant Ressel must still be all messed up as they released him after rookie minicamp. How bad do you have to be to be released from a rookie minicamp when your the only kicker there?

Now the pickings are real slim.

Maybe he complained about Haley's new playbook being difficult to learn

Any other kicker/s coming in? Steelers need some good competition for OTA's.

Steelers are trying to bring in some competition, this from Steelers Depot:

"Veteran kicker Dave Rayner was brought in for a visit this past week and the Steelers also had put in a claim for kicker Jake Rogers following him being waived by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Dallas Cowboys were awarded the waiver claim on Rogers instead."

Isn't Longwell the obvious choice in available kickers? I understand he is at the end of his career, but we don't neccesarily need a long term kicker right now, we need a kicker that can make the kicks this year and then look for a long term kicker next year since there are not any long term solutions available right now.

that's why they should of drafted one....instead lets wait and then not even get a top UFA kicker ... i don't think anybody really expected Ressel to really be competition

I'm really not all that upset with Suisham, he's not great or anything but he's pretty reliable inside of 45...it's not that easy to get even that in a kicker. People act like it's easy to just go out and get a kicker who's automatic from 50+, like all you have to do is draft a guy in the 7th round and he'll do that for you. With Suisham, we don't have a Pro Bowl kicker or anything but getting anything better would really be a luxury at this point.

If Suisham is kicking this year, it's hardly the end of the world. He'll miss a a couple, and he might not kick a 60 yarder in a blizzard at Heinz in overtime to win, but he'll hit just about everything he has to to win games.

Yeah, instead of Rosetta Stone, he needed Kicking for Dummies
