With Mason Crosby opting out of 2020 season, the Packers need a Placekicker. This could be a changing of the guard too as Crosby was showing some signs of age.

Should GB look for a kicker who already has league experience? or

Should GB look for some rookie just out of college? or

Should GB put out an open invitation to try out for for GB's open Placekicker job? or

Is there some other option not listed to find a Placekicker that the Packers can trust and rely upon?

Put a call into Stephen Gostkowski.
Next best option would be to see if Graham Gano has recovered.
Of the young kids Jet Toner or Jace Christmann seem to be the best options.
Maybe Cole Tracy is available.

FACT CHECK



At age 35 and holder of every significant kicking record in Green Bay Packers history, Mason Crosby would have surprised no one if he had opted out on the 2020 NFL season.

Crosby has not signed the opt-out clause offered to every NFL player who felt it was not safe for him or his family to risk contracting COVID-19 while at work.

But he was added Thursday to the Packers’ reserve/COVID-19 list, which means he either tested positive for the virus or was in a place where the risk of being exposed was elevated.

PUP list or opting out, Covid-19 is no joke. Physical brutes have been reduced to weaklings and those considered very healthy have died. I wish Mason Crosby all the best, but not being prepared with another placekicker would be reckless. I don't know if there is an opt out deadline, but gambling on a single player at a scoring critical position with the continuing possibility that your single player could get sick is dangerous.

I still say find and hire another placekicker. Place him on the practice squad if necessary, but get the best kicker available, pay him to step up or be ready to step up. Past practices don't all apply with a Viral Pandemic raging all about us. I would also examine the roster for someone that can also punt a football should the need arise. Cross train the 2nd and 3rd QBs to serve as holders for the placekicker as well.

Actually it's neither of those... it's the Covid-19 list.

The guys that got it now should be over Covid by the start of the season and science suggest they should have at least a three month immunization window.

This virus attacks the lungs and takes time to recover, considering kickers probably don't stress their lungs as much as other positions. If Crosby says he's playing, then I'd probably be more concerned with the others that caught the virus, and those whom I thought might be more likely to catch it.

Well I glanced at this thread while I was on hold at the office. I just had a chance to look online and I didn't see a single report that Mason planned to opt out of the season. He will be back in a coupe of weeks. No need to sign a kicker and have him sit on the bench waiting. The guys who have not signed with a team are a dime a dozen. You can get them any time.

Zero2Cool (11h) : Aaron Rodgers: No reason I wouldn’t be back, but no absolutes
Mucky Tundra (11h) : that said i'll probably remember that one when arguing with people about Rodgers
Mucky Tundra (11h) : Getting really tired of hearing those type of factoids in connection when the Packers lose
Zero2Cool (15h) : @NFLonCBS Aaron Rodgers is the only QB in NFL history to have 3 playoff losses in games where he threw 3+ Pass TD.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : During his post game, he even said he understood it.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : I don't think Rodgers was against the FG, he just wasn't aware that was the plan. Huge difference there. Understand it, please.
nerdmann (25-Jan) : Taking the FG is proof that Matt is smarter than Aaron.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : "The funny stuff that happens every day that half of it you can't share, and the other half of it you don't want to. That's what I'm going to remember."
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : Corey Linsley on what he'll remember from the 2020 #Packers season: "The funny stuff that happens every day that half of it you can't share, and the other half of it you don't want to. That's what I'm
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : Reading the comments from all over is disheartening how ungrateful the squeaky wheel fan base is.
yooperfan (25-Jan) : Oh believe me I was Cheesey
Cheesey (25-Jan) : A warden?!? I hope you were on the right side of the bars, Yoop!😂🤪😂
yooperfan (25-Jan) : If I was Rodgers I would retire. I retired 15 years ago because we had a warden who didn’t know how to run a prison and couldn’t tell the truth.
nerdmann (25-Jan) : Kevin King is like Burt Favor. Untrustworthy. Kevin is paying back gambling debts, Burt Favor was blackmailed for his texting habits.
nerdmann (25-Jan) : I'd be shocked if Aaron completed a pass from goal to go in a big game. Or ran it in with a wide open field.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : I wouldn't be shocked if Aaron Rodgers retires.
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : That's a coincidence, not irony, lol. Packers always picking late in the round. Gooder drafting is needed though.
TheKanataThrilla (25-Jan) : The same position when the traded down to 33 to draft Kevin King. Irony.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : Packers will pick at the #29 position in the NFL draft
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : “I sure as hell hope so,” LaFleur said when asked if he thought Rodgers would be back in green and gold in 2021. “The guy’s the MVP of this league. He is the heart and soul of our football team, so he
Zero2Cool (25-Jan) : NFL MVP won't be winning Super Bowl, again. Annoying.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : and I dont think Josh Allen is gonna get it done against Brady
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : I'm rooting for KC cuz I can't stomach Tampa Bay after that game
Cheesey (25-Jan) : So many chances, so many screw ups. KING
Cheesey (25-Jan) : Now I don’t care who wins the SB.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : whatever problems KC had midseason seem to be gone now
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : oh man TJ Lang from the top rope on Bostick
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : @TJLang70 Nah I think they all actually tried to do their job.
Mucky Tundra (25-Jan) : @Bostick11 They Still Gonna Blame Me...
Mucky Tundra (24-Jan) : i just want to sit here for the rest of the day and not do anything but that's counterproductive
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : 😥😥😥
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : @RobDemovsky This is the 2011 playoffs all over again. JPP causing havoc. Hail Mary to end the half.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Let's fucking go!!!
Tezzy (24-Jan) : Go Pack Go!
Mucky Tundra (24-Jan) : i guess they had the tarp down or the photos were old ones because I'm not seeing any snow on the field now
Cheesey (24-Jan) : I’m a nervous wreck right now.
Mucky Tundra (24-Jan) : Just looked at the Packers facebook page; a nice little layer of snow on the ground
nerdmann (24-Jan) : They released Dexter Williams from the PS this week.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Kevin King is active. Tramon Williams is active. Inactive: Kingsley Keke, Jordan Love, Jonathan Garvin, Jace Sternberger, Josh Jackson, Vernon Scott, Ka’dar Hollman
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : As eagle-eyed @mattschneidman noticed, Kevin King is going through a warm-up on the field. There's no trainer by him, for what it's worth - only Jaire Alexander, with King working on press coverage
nerdmann (24-Jan) : Run it up the gut. See what Vea's got.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : amesPalmerTV confirmed Arians plan for Vita Vea today is 20 to 25 snaps...
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Not looking good for Winfield Jr per what was just said.
Cheesey (24-Jan) : Keep the flag flying, Yoop!!!😁
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Green Bay is 15-1 in their last 16 games at home against Tampa Bay.
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : Geez. Rodgers has less wins more losses than Brady when sub 40°
buckeyepackfan (24-Jan) : GAME DAY! GO! PACK! GO!
Zero2Cool (24-Jan) : It's snowing here, but we only have few inches so far, nothing major.
yooperfan (24-Jan) : Snowing like crazy here in Ishpeming. I’m wishing for snow 150 miles south of here. GO PACK GO!!!
