& the Seahawks. Seabass pulled a hamstring trying to kick a 57 yarder right before the half.

Worst case he gets re-signed by CFL.

I didn't realize that those under contract by the CFL couldn't already pursue NFL teams.

Looks like he got signed by the Chargers.

Do the Chargers need a kicker?

I haven't a clue.

Not even sure if the Chargers season is over yet but I'm thinking they might have lost this last weekend.

Very few positions for kickers.

Would he be a punter and/or kicker?

Seemed like he did everything up at BC.

Most teams have a punter and kicker. It’s highly unlikely he would do anything more than kickoffs and fgs/XP’s.

But they only designate one roster spot for each. If Ty can back up the other guy, then you won't have the problem the Seahawks did when Janikowski pulled a hamstring. They tried the punter in the role of FG kicker, but he was baaaad.
