Kansas City Chiefs Agree to Terms with Kicker Dave Rayner

New, comments

**UPDATE** The Star confirms the Rayner signing. Adam Teicher also said that the Chiefs plan to put Justin Medlock on the practice squad if he clears waivers. That means someone has to come off of the practice squad...Sippio? Actually, I'm not really sure how that would work roster wise.

The news come via Rotoworld and the NFL Network but nothing official out of the front office.

Rayner lost his kicking job in Green Bay after he was beat out by 2007 draft pick Mason Crosby. Current kicker Justin Medlock was only a miss or two away from losing his job. It appears now that he has.

I think we gave up on Medlock too early if this news turns out be true. He deserved at least another game to prove his worth. Seems like Herm and the crew decided before yesterday's game that if Medlock missed a gimme kick, he would lose his starting spot. Rayner was one of the many kickers the Chiefs worked out last week.

I'll confirm this when/if it becomes official.
