The Redskins have agreed to terms with punter Hunter Smith, which — given Smith’s career statistics and the fact that he ranked 12th in gross and 10th in net on his 53 punts last season — seems likely to put an end to the training camp punter battle that everyone was looking forward to.
But hey, if it means we can trot out a punter who once made up for a bad punt by tackling Deion Sanders inside the five — and who pinned 23 punts inside the twenty in 2008 with only two touchbacks — missing the punter battle seems A-OK with me.
UPDATE: And when it turns out that he’s one half of Connersvine, a contemporary Christian band, for which he also blogs — (dislikes: Adam Lambert’s terrible cover of Ring Of Fire on American Idol; promos for Hell’s Kitchen; likes: pets, ducklings) — well … I don’t think A-OK really covers it.
Connersvine performs their song “Hero” live at Winterjam (on YouTube), after the jump.
