When your back is up against it, you do whatever it takes to win. You fight, claw, and win when the opportunity comes, you seize it.
… Or, you trade for a punter. That works too.
Cleveland traded a 7th rounder for San Francisco punter Andy Lee. He is, admittedly, a pretty awesome punter. However, Spencer Lanning wasn’t exactly chopped liver either. I actually like the move, and a 7th rounder isn’t much (and it’s a 2017 7th rounder, no less), but swapping punters when the guy you had was at least okay seems like shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic. It’s not likely to blow up in Cleveland’s face, at least, and I have a feeling we’ll be punting a lot.
