Seattle begins search for new kicker Jason Myers to visit with Seahawks By: Jake Gordon | Jan 3 2018, 10:20 am
According to a source, the Seahawks are getting visits this week from both a kicker and a punter with NFL experience who are currently street free agents, meaning they were not on a roster when the 2017 season and can be signed now (players who are unrestricted free agents but on rosters when the season ended cannot be signed until the new league year begins on March 14).
The kicker is Jason Myers, who spent all of the 2015 and 2016 seasons with Jacksonville and the first six games of this year before released following three misses that proved critical in two losses (though all from 52 yards or longer).
FFToday's Take:Seattle brought in Blair Walsh after Steven Hauschka left following 2016 season. Walsh made only 21 of the 27 field goals he attempted during the 2017 campaign and is not expected to be back when his contract expires after the season. Jason Myers was unable to hold onto his job due to accuracy issues but his leg strength remains appealing to NFL teams.
