    Lions Sign Matt Prater

    As expected. The surprise here is that it was only a one-year contract.

    This is the no-brainer move of the year! Alex Henery couldn't the side of a barn! They will be sweating that one loss at the end of the year

    Good move for the Lions. Prater is a proven veteran who can step in and lock down the position.

    Damn, was hoping the Saints would sign him.

    Shane Graham makes me nervous.

    Well, he has one thing going for him, he can't do any worse than they did.

    We are talking about possibly the best kicker in football here that set the NFL record last year with his 64-yard field goal. Obviously the altitude helped, but he should excel in the controlled conditions in a dome too.

    A drunk Prater is still a better kicker than a sober Freese or Henery.

    Wow set up nice for him in the dome. Denver should have helped him with rehab and kept him.

    He will meet other drunks there and fall off the wagon.

    Good kickers are hard to find. Guys that kick for distance and accuracy and most importantly don't choke under pressure. Probably one of the most mental positions in sports.
