As you’d expect, the Steelers aren’t wasting any time trying to find a kicker to fill Shaun Suisham’s cleats. After learning the bad news from earlier today, the team has already reportedly scheduled a few workouts for tomorrow.
According to NFL Network, the Steelers will host Jay Feely, Alex Henery, and Garrett Hartley for workouts tomorrow.
Feely is 39 years old. The 14 year veteran was a free agent for much of last season before being signed by the Bears in December.
Henery is 27. He was cut by the Lions last October after missing 3 field goals in a close loss to the Bills. It wasn’t the first performance last season that had people questioning his confidence.
Hartley is 29 years old. He was signed by the Browns last year to replace Billy Cundiff. He did well there, but was released by the Browns in May.
None of these guys are really “that guy” you’re going to feel comfortable with when the game on the line from the 45 with 3 seconds left in late October, when the wind is blowing and it’s spitting freezing rain at Heinz Field.
