Eagles Bring In Florida Punter Chas Henry

Sav Rocca is one of the Eagles 15 unrestricted free agents. This morning, I had him as the free agent that was most likely to return next year, but the Eagles most recent UDFA signing could change that. They have agreed to terms with Florida punter Chas Henry. He was the winner of the 2010 Ray Guy award, which is given to the nation’s top punter and was a consensus first team All-American.

While I think there's a good chance that Rocca will be brought back, it's not going to be with any real guarantees, so the punter competition can probably be considered open. One issue though is that if Henry won the job, the Eagles would enter the year with two rookies as kickers, which is something I can't ever remember happening. The team drafted Alex Henery out of Nebraska in the fourth round of the draft this year to replace David Akers as placekicker. Like Henery, Henry also pulled double duty as a kicker and punter.

So will we see Henery and Henry kicking at the Linc next season? As the Giants can attest, it can be risky going with a rookie punter.
