I like the signing. He sucked on XPs, but we shouldn’t be kicking those anyway. He was well above average on FGs.

Yes! But when needed! Remember, a missed attempt = 6 vs 7 for the TD. That can be the game.

I like the move. Now go out and sign an undrafted for competition. Just don’t waste a pick on one.
Also, if you can make 50% of your 2 point conversions, it’s like making 100% of PATs. Just about nobody does that.
If my math is right, if we made 43.5% of 2 point conversions, we’d have come out the same as far as points go.
