Will he take a pay cut if he does?

Re: SP loves him some Wil Lutz

I think there's no question that Sean Payton also really wants a kicker who can reliably be THE GUY, and that has been his pattern, the whole time, of him constantly looking for THE GUY so he can have HIS GUY and stop looking for THE GUY and then stop worrying and fretting about it. After starting out with Karney and Olindo Mare, I think Garrett Hartley was kinda supposed to be THE GUY, and for a little while he definitely was THE GUY. People hate him but the emo kid set records in the Super Bowl, and got us out of the OT against Minnesota, for crying out loud. Payton tried to stick with Hartley, because he was supposed to be THE GUY, but when Hartley cracked up and wasn't THE GUY anymore, then Payton went back to the drawing board, back to the nerve-wracking OCD carousel of kickers, that we all know and hate him for. And so here we are.

I'm hoping that maybe this guy will be THE GUY. I mean, Payton obviously saw something in this guy, that must have felt better in his gut than BOTH the other two options, who to me were clearly just "guys" and not THE GUY.

At this point, we can only hope! But I share the feeling, that both of those guys we had, were okay, decent journeyman kickers, but they were not really THE GUY.

We make fun of these little buggers, but they are important. The Patriots don't win the Super Bowl in 2001 without Adam Vinatieri making long field goals in awful kicking conditions to get them there. And then he hit a long field goal to win another SB.

I'd like to have a kicker who's money in the bank like that.
Pats wouldn't have won the majority of their Super Bowl's without a kicker.

we really dont know how well Breaux is going to work out yet. Kenny V also looked good in his first year only to plateau the next 2. lets see how Breaux does as the number one guy.
