This guy is another small weak kicker.... His field goal attempts look like a average passer...

Here is Carson Wiggs.. We needed a 6'1 222 kicker. i cant believe we let him go by us...

Nothing to see here ...move along. Just a another competition kicker to , well, bring in competition. Suisham might not be a world beater but the Steelers havn't brought in another to create a legit threat, yet.
