    Adam Podlesh 3rd in NFL with just 2 touchbacks last season. Ranked 13th with 27 kicks inside 20. Can't just look at avg w punters

    Mesko/McBriar had 16 punts downed inside 20 last season. Podlesh had 27 with only two touchbacks.

    I guess Brad Wing and Podlesh are going to battle it out. Probably will add a UDFA kid out of college too. Think they really want to improve the punting game and special teams?

    SOP to bring in a veteran camp body more for our returners to get reps then a camp battle but it never hurts to give a little test to our starter. His highlight will be punting that sixth punt to AB at Latrobe while he is holding onto the previous 5 punts. Fans get a kick out of that show.
