With lil’ Robbie Gould bitching his way out of SF, and with the kicking saga in Chicago reaching epic proportions, you’d think we could work out some kind of
fleecing deal that Lynch could conjure up with da Bears. Chicago is in kicking hell, and holding open tryouts for placekickers from the magic 33 yard line. Yes, the same 33 yard line where recently cut, and still collecting bank, Cody Pankey famously double-doinked his kick in the playoffs last year.
Funny thing is, no one in the tryouts can hit from 43. They had 8 guys kicking, and they went 2-8. They narrowed it down to
Dewey, Cheathan, and Howe Piniero, Blewett, and Fry. They got the benefit of the doubt and were kicking 42 yard FGs. They all missed. Because Blewett, well, blew it, he was blown off the team. They are down to Fry and Piniero. Are they even options? Are they in the market for Robbie? He’s been openly pleading to go back there after they shoved him out the door 4 years ago.
Given the fact that Matt Nagy has made this such a huge deal for the team, one would think we could work out a trade. Chicago won’t be trading draft picks to us as they have burned a shit ton last year (1st and 2nd for Khalil Mack, 4th rounder to move up and get David Montgomery) and they only have 6 picks.
Players? It would be cool to get ILB Danny Trevathan from the Bears. They’ll get cap relief of around $6 mill, they get their kicker, and we shore up our defense even more. We’d proll have to throw in a 4th round pick or something, but hey sounds good to me.
