According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, longtime Packers kicker Mason Crosby will have to compete with the recently signed Giorgio Tavecchio for the 2013 starting job. The Packers signed Tavecchio Tuesday.
Last season, Tavecchio spent time in training camp with the 49ers before being cut near the end. In four seasons playing for the University of California, he made 48 of 64 attempts, good for 75%.
I would like to have this guy start instead of Crosby because Crosby's inconsistency has become intolerable. He does not deserve the job anymore. Unless he really heats up in the preseason, I think they should cut him.
