This story started a couple months ago when the Atlanta Falcons drafted Miami Hurricanes specialist Matt Bosher. He can kick and punt. Nobody knew why that had happened until we looked up and realized both Matt Bryant's and Michael Koenen's contracts were up. Thursday night, Bryant was re-signed. Now you're all caught up.
Adam Schefter reported at midnight Thursday that Koenen will be joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, having agreed to a six-year deal. Six years! The Falcons would have to play against Koenen at least 12 times if that entire deal played out. Think of the hell he could raise against his former team.
Koenen is a good player whose statistics may have been skewed by the team's preference to refute returns rather than go for yardage. He has a strong enough leg to kickoff, so he could've been a boomer of a punter had the Falcons chose to let the big dog roam. I'm saying all this to say we might never have realized how good Koenen was at his job, but now we're going to notice it every single time he succeeds.
