September 9 Quick Kicks Podcast: Exploring Roster Cutdowns for Specialists with Dave Archibald

It seems that every year there are several surprising cuts or trades involving specialists right before the season starts, and this year is no different. Dave Archibald joins Chuck Zodda on the September 9 Quick Kicks Podcast to look at some of the more surprising moves, such as the Bears cutting Robbie Gould, and discuss why teams waited so long to make these moves. Other topics include:

  • The kicking specialists that were moved before roster cuts, starting with Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee (2:11)
  • Why the Panthers made the trade for Andy Lee so late in the off-season (5:45)
  • Did Andy Lee’s superb holding skills for field goals factor into the trade (9:20)
  • Why the Bears replaced Robbie Gould with Connor Barth (10:55)
  • Will Barth be able to adjust to the colder climates of the NFC North (14:05)
