Eagles Sign Punter/Kicker Rich McGee

The Eagles brought in another punter to compete with Sav Rocca today. Rich McGee signed a three year deal, and he has a very strong leg according to what I have read on him. He is apparently excellent at booming the ball into the end zone on kickoffs. If he were to win the punting job, you could also see him take over as the kickoff specialist.

David Akers seems to have lost something since he had that hamstring injury in 2005, and his kick offs have been very poor since then.

    very true jd. koy has the art of holding down to a science. i used to know akers would nail almost any fg, and now i worry even on chip shots.
