The signs were on the wall. Injuries, Missed kicks, lack of the long kick. After 14 seasons the Pats have released their All-Time Scoring Leader Stephen Gostkowski.
The exiting 4 time Pro Bowler was praised by teammate and former teammates including Tom Brady.
Stephens leaving does free up some salary cap space BUT leave the kicking position wide open. Last season when he left due to his injury several kickers attempted to win the roster spot but no one actually did.
In Bill we trust & I'm hoping that in the draft there's a leg that the Patriots want to call their own.
