Player Change Was Now Date
Michael Koenen 32 24 09-03-06
The Falcons have opted to turn their punter into a punter/kicker and give him triple duty with punting, kickoffs and field goals/extra points. The move frees up at least one other roster spot for most teams but also means an injury to Koenen will have a huge effect on special teams.

Mike Vanderjagt 10 19 09-01-06
Vanderjagt 's kicking woes in Dallas had never been as bad as when he missed both 30-yard field goals in overtime during the final preseason game. Consider him only as a deep back-up until he can prove that his magic wasn't completely left in Indianapolis.
Player Change Was Now Date
Adam Vinatieri 1 5 08-31-06
Vinatieri slides down on the news that he has a small broken bone in his non-kicking foot. He has not been ruled out for week one yet and kicking for the Colts is a good thing, but he is a kicker and there's no reason to take a chance with the first kicker drafted. If you take him, ensure you have a back-up.

Mike Vanderjagt 8 10 08-25-06
Vanderjagt has been surprisingly errant in training camp in Dallas and he continues to be bothered by a groin injury. He really needs this time to get used to his new holder and field. Dallas hasn't produced a kicker that has exceeded 20th best in the NFL in years and Vanderjagt is getting a bothersome slow start in his new home.
Player Change Was Now Date
Stephen Gostkowski 30 15 08-24-06
The Patriots have released Martin Gramatica and awarded the kicking job to the rookie Gostkowski who has yet to miss a field during a preseason game. The Patriots only produced 20th best kicking points last year and have typically placed in the top ten in previous years.
Player Change Was Now Date
Dave Rayner NR 28 08-18-06
With the release of Cundiff, Rayner has won the kicking competition in Green Bay. The team may still bring in another kicker but at least for now the job belongs to Rayner.
Player Change Was Now Date
Billy Cundiff 28 NR 08-18-06
Cundiff was released from the Packers.
Player Change Was Now Date
Atlanta Kicker 32 32 08-07-06
Tony Yelk is the currect kicker in camp but the team wants to see what kickers are available after the final cuts so there is no relying on who the kicker will be for Atlanta until the season starts.
Player Change Was Now Date
Zac Derr 32 NR 08-07-06
Derr was cut from the team.
