Despite the Bucs recently bringing in two kickers for visits before replacing Matt Gay with Ryan Succop, it appears that Tampa Bay isn’t done searching for their best option at the position.

Agent Brett Tessler reported on Sunday that the Bucs’ will also be adding kicker Greg Joseph, signing him to the practice squad following the league’s testing protocol.

Joseph is a two-year veteran in the league, spending 14 games with Cleveland in 2018 where he converted 25 of his 29 extra point attempts and 17 of his 20 field goal attempts, with his longest made kick coming from 51 yards out.

Last season Joseph spent two games with the Titans, hitting all nine of his extra point attempts and not attempting any field goals.

Over his career, Joseph is perfect on seven field goal attempts inside of 39 yards, 5/7 from 40-49 yards and 1/2 from over 50 yards. Consistency on mid-range kicks is the primary focus for head coach Bruce Arians and special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong.

Taking a risk on the unknown vs the easy decision to go with the known in Gay. Like it.

Bold Prediction #1 is already looking good…

Succop to be replaced by week 3 after misses in the first two weeks.

Does this mean we will not be drafting a Kicker next year? (joking)

Great to see they’re leaving no stone unturned. Succop has been solid other than his injury plagued year last season. I expect to see him do well this year, but it’s always good to have a backup plan for now and the future.

Instead of a “kick in the ass” to Matt Gay we now have “kickers out the ass” with one on the 53 man roster and another on deck. If nothing else, Jason Licht is “kicking” the tires trying to find someone……anyone to fill a position that for many teams is set for a decade.

Who knows if either of these guys will be any better than the collection of PK’s in recent past who so quickly turned excitement to disappointment? I know one thing. I won’t be buying their jersey.
