I like them both and feel very confident going into camp with just those two.

Connor Hughes is who you're thinking of, but I don't think he was in camp last year (at least not in any lengthy serious capacity). Two years ago he made a nice impression though.

Isn't the kicker for the Titians a UFA this year? Rob Baronis (sp?)

Edit:

The Titans have not approached K Rob Bironas yet about a potential contract extension.

Bironas, who's coming off easily the best season of his career, can be a restricted free agent in March. The Titans may decide to tender him at the second-round level rather than lock him up with a lot of guaranteed money.

IIRC he's a RFA. I would be in favor of drafting a kicker (I like Carmody out of Louisville personally) to bolster the position long term. Yea, Mare or Gramatica could probably get us through the season, but I think we should be looking for a guy who can kick for us for years.

The last 2 years I've called for drafting Stephen Gostkowski and Mason Crosby. I'd be in favour of looking at Brandon Coutu

i don't know when the georgia kicker gets drafted but someone will value him higher than we do... also, i was impressed with colt david this year, he seems to have potential and will probably be an ufa (he is a senior, right?)

Colt David hasn't made a kick over 40 yards I think.

Keep Gramatica or get Bironas. Both are proven. No rookies, no Mare.

He made a 55 yarder,and I think it was a 45 yarder he hit 2 times in a row to win the game after the opposing coach called time out.He also had 2 49 yarders.
