Mare will be able to put up Carney-like numbers kicking in domes 10-12 times a year.

Think about the touchback factor. EVERY one of Carney's KO's were returned, which is a potential TD or injury on every kick, not to mention starting at the 25-30, instead of the 20.

My issue is Mare's price tag- $2 million. Hopefully that will even out, since we will now have rookies and cheaper vets on special teams

I thought Carney did really well last year. I am a little weary of Mare and his numbers. I think Carney deserved another year.

Carney really lost some leg strength last year and Mare has better leg strength I think its a good pick up by the saints....

A good pick up, you save money by having only one kicker and the touchbacks will be something we haven't seen since Morten Andersons.

First of all, I'm a big John Carney fan and I wish him well. But, the game of football is about field position, having to go 80yds as apposed to 60-65yds is a hell of a lot harder. Mare had more touch backs last year than any other kicker and when it wasn't a tb his hang time was ridiculous, so all in all it was worth a 6th rd pick.
