WATCH: Panthers backup punter Jordan Gay booms one eight yards
The NFL preseason is for coaches to evaluate talent, trim the roster, and work the kinks out on offense, defense, and special teams. Some say it’s too long or unnecessary, but there is no other way to evaluate players who are on the roster bubble in game situations.
That being said, mistakes are aplenty throughout the four weeks of preseason, and as usual, kickers are the butt of every joke. Carolina Panthers backup punter Jordan Gay found this out the hard way after a punt that went a grand total of eight yards Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The week before, he blew an extra point. Poor guy.
