Source: Saints would like to bring back kicker Kai Forbath

The New Orleans Saints have had discussions with Kai Forbath and would like to bring the kicker back, a source told The Advocate.

Forbath, the veteran kicker who was signed midseason after the Saints cut Zach Hocker, made 9-of-13 field goals in 10 games with New Orleans.

Forbath buried two game-winning kicks for the Saints, blasting a 50-yard kick through the uprights to beat the Giants and a 30-yarder to beat Atlanta in the season finale.

But Forbath’s potential game-winner against Tennessee was blocked, one of two Forbath field goals that were blocked in New Orleans last season.

650K with bonuses sounds about right. Bring in a couple UDFA's and let them fight it out.

I wish that Payton had a clue how to evaluate kickers. As much as they are useless in every way outside of kicking, the fact is that having a consistent kicker is very important. We haven't had a dependable one since Carney's first stint here. Even he was bad when he came back.

I still don't understand the decision to cut Dustin Hopkins and keep Zach Hocker going into last season. Hopkins was money all training camp and Hocker was regularly missing a kick or two. Please let us find someone reliable once and for all.

I partially blame our special teams/coaching staff.

It's time to draft and develop a competent kicker.
