A Heavier Kicker

Mike Nugent gained ten pounds during the off-season and claims to already notice a difference. Via Dan Martin’s article in the New York Post:

“I can definitely feel the difference,” said Nugent, who drilled kicks from 48 and 26 yards, as well as a 53-yarder at the end of the first half, before missing the final attempt that would have forced overtime. “Now, the key is not to lose it, so I have to stay in the weight room.”

“I looked around the league at some of the better kickers, like Olindo [Mare] and [Adam] Vinatieri, and saw that even though they were only an inch or so taller than me, they had 10 or 20 pounds on me,” Nugent said of the 190-pound Mare and 202-pound Vinatieri. “I knew the only way I would ever get to that level would be to get bigger, so that’s what I did.”

My season tickets are in row ten of the endzone. I guess I might have a shot to catch some kickoffs.
