I Would Feel Used

One day after signing a one year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs kicker Jay Feely was cut. He was brought in to compete for a roster spot with Connor Barth and Nick Novak and when they performed better than he did during a two day “kick off” Feely was cut. I get the impression that Kansas City just wanted to see how Barth and Novak would react to the pressure. Otherwise why would they not even give Feely a chance to get acclimated before making a final decision on his future with the team? Connor Barth has yet to kick in the NFL. Novak played 0 games in 2007 and in 2006 he made five field goals in ten attempts. His career percentage is 65%. Jay Feely made 91.3% of field goals just last year with the Dolphins and he’s above 80% in his career. Also he’s played in 16 games in each of his seasons in the NFL. But all that is being tossed aside and Kansas City is making their decision based on 30 kick attempts. Feely made 23. Barth made 28. Novak made 27.
So where does Feely go from here? I hope to see somebody pick him up and then I hope he proceeds to outperform which Chief kicker does make the team. Would that really surprise anyone?
