The Philadelphia Eagles announced today that they have signed Punter Sav Rocca to a one-year deal.
Rocca had been a restricted free agent.
The 36-year-old Rocca notched a franchise-best 38.3 net punting average in 2009, breaking his old single-season record of 37.9 which he set in 2008. He has averaged 42.6 gross yards per punt in his three seasons in Philadelphia while also dropping 74 punts inside the 20-yard line.
Also, at 6'5", 265, couldn’t he also play linebacker? After-all Aussie Rules football is tackle without the pads. I’m just sayin.
