Mike Nugent, UFA, New York Jets
Nugent has been somewhat consistent from distance in his short career, but an injury forced the Jets to go with Jay Feely early in the season and the team seems content to let Feely continue to handle the kicking duties. As for Nugent, from over 40 yards, he had converted 13 of 19 from over 40 yards during the ’06 and ’07 seasons and three of seven on kicks over 50 yards. He isn’t an elite kicker, but his age and development will find a team willing to give a decent look.Shane Lechler, UFA, Oakland Raiders
A Pro Bowl punter, Lechler has a booming leg and has been important to the Raiders special teams’ play for more than eight seasons. He averaged 42.5 yards per punt in his worst season, but otherwise has never averaged less than 45.7 per kick. His 49.1 yards per punt average during ’07 wa quite impressive and he is averaging a better 49.4 yards per punt so far this season. While he isn’t a great short situation punter, he will help a team win field position battles regularly. The Raiders will want Lechler back after this season.
