Three To Get Ready

View CoverRead All Articles

If you need a kicker late, consider these three not-so-obvious choices who should score more in '08.

1. Josh Scobee, Jaguars
He missed eight games last year with a bum quad, but he still placed ninth in the league with 7.8 points per game.

2. Neil Rackers, Cardinals
He made only 70% of his field goals last year, but seven of his nine misses were from beyond 47. The healthy returns of Anquan Boldin and Matt Leinart will help move the ball closer to the goalposts.

3. Mike Nugent, Jets
Off-season moves had improved New York's offensive prospects even before the acquisition of Brett Favre.
