Saints will stay with kicker Zach Hocker

I'm glad that Payton wasn't the Saints head coach when Morton was our kicker!

According to Fox's Mike Garafolo, the Saints are staying put with kicker Zach Hocker for now.

New Orleans brought free agent kickers Randy Bullock and Kai Forbath in for workouts on Wednesday. Both kickers did well, but no contract was offered at this time.

Reportedly, Bullock made all of his kicks while Forbath missed one field goal from 53 yards out but did hit from 55 yards.

Despite their success, Hocker retains his job at the moment.

Update: Per ESPN's Field Yates Kyle Brindza also worked out for Saints on Wednesday.

Glad they're staying with the kid. Hell Graham didn't do terrible but he had me ****ting bricks when he lined up for an XP or a FG.

Good move.

Every other attempt of his seems to split the uprights down the middle.

Re: Saints will stay with kicker Zach Hocker

Like someone else said on another thread, his kicks are straight, they don't duck hook. The kick he missed Sunday Night just started on the left side and basically stayed there. I think if he was 5 yards further back it would have drifted inside the uprights though.
