Re: Saints sign Dustin Hopkins to practice squad

I'm so jealous of teams like Indy and New England who've had the same, reliable kickers for it seems like a decade now...

Apparently we're the only team with a kicker on it's practice squad... Because y'know, that's the type of personnel decisions we make nowadays.

Re: Saints sign Dustin Hopkins to practice squad

Kind of a sad commentary on our depth. A practice squad spot on a kicker. Could be worse, I reckon...next would be a practice squad spot for a long snapper or a special teams coordinator.

Re: Saints sign Dustin Hopkins to practice squad

Not quite sure why he is not kicking somewhere now. Everything I read shows he was winning the job in Buffalo until he was injured and out for the season. Carpenter is a really good kicker and if he was beating him out we should of signed this guy 3 missed 30 yard FG's ago.
