Punters are people too

NFL: San Diego Chargers-Rookie Minicamp Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Good news from San Diego: Aggie legend and former Ray Guy finalist Drew Kaser has nailed down the starting gig for the Chargers.

The Chargers waived punter Kasey Redfern yesterday, but Drew says he’s still competing against himself to hone his game. Kaser’s former Aggie specialist teammate Josh Lambo is also with the team. Head coach Mike McCoy had this to say about the team’s new starting punter:

“Drew is the guy we wanted moving forward with,” McCoy said. “He did a nice job in the practices and the time he has been here. There is a reason we picked him where we did… I like his leg. You want a great kick all the time, and he is going to learn things (with) situational football (and) the way we do things. Seeing the early parts of his career here, (he has) directional kicking plus a really strong leg. We have liked what we have seen so far.”

Give ‘em hell, Drew.
