Tampa just paid 19.5 million for a punter


You read that right. Tampa Bay just signed punter Michael Koenen for 6 years and 19.5 million dollars. Most all experts and analysts are baffled by this move and I must say so am I. I understand the need for a punter with a mule leg and to keep people pinned inside their own 20 if possible. I could see that if it were Chris Kluwe and he was also reading freshly written material at every half time and doing a weekly show, cause that is one funny sob. The weirdest part about the deal is he isn't even that good of a punter. Among punters with at least 50 attempts last year he was ranked 30th with an average of just 40. 7 yards and only 28th at dropping punts inside the 20. So this begs the question of whether it was just to take Atlanta's punter from them in a bout of psychological war fare or this guy is also going to play defensive end for them as well? Makes 12.5 for Mare look a lot better if you ask me, at the very least Mare can score and often from the 40 and in, as well as being one of the most accurate kickers still around. Well not the biggest news ever but a definite  WTF moment and something I figured people would like to laugh at, enjoy!
