Justin Vogel Might Have Made A Good Call

Justin Vogel

After the Green Bay Packers drafted punter J.K. Scott in the fifth round of the NFL Draft, incumbent Justin Vogel was understandably displeased.

First, can we call him J.K. Rowling yet? Or maybe Harry Potter?

Anyway, Vogel wanted his release and the Packers granted his wish late last week. This came after a rookie season in which Vogel set a franchise record for net punting and was a Pro Bowl alternate. While you can poo-poo that in several ways if you so please, Vogel was certainly the best punter the Packers have had in some time.

Naturally, Vogel was claimed on waivers. And naturally, he was claimed by the Cleveland Browns and our old boy John Dorsey.

Dorse… of course.

In Cleveland, Vogel will compete with Britton Colquitt for punting job. Colquitt hammered it for a 47.6 yard average in 2017. Vogel hit for 44.4. However, Vogel out netted Colquitt 41.6 to 40.6.

The biggest number for these two guys might be this one, though. Colquitt is 33 and Vogel is 24.

As for the Packers, they have left their punting job to a rookie who will seemingly have no competition. Scott was a stud at Alabama, but we’ve seen great college punters come into the NFL and fail many times before. That isn’t to say Scott will be one of them, but there definitely remains that possibility.

    Hey Cleveland, wanna punter? You already have the gunner that made him look real good.

    Called it. I don’t get smart too often with this stuff but Cleveland picking up Vogel and man buns being douchie are two things I know. I had a premonition three days ago on this one.

    Good luck Justin Vogel

    At least Scott wasn’t a third rounder like Brett Conway.

    The problem is we don’t have a Ryan Longwell now on the roster.
