Seahawks sign kicker Sam "Fricken Kicken" Ficken

I'm ready to move on from SeaBass, aren't you?

Seahawks sign kicker Sam Ficken to reserve/future contract

They’re just one week into the offseason, but the Seahawks aren’t wasting any time when it comes to personnel moves. Just three days after Seattle signed nine of its practice squad players to reserve/future contracts, the team added a tenth signing: free agent kicker Sam Ficken.

Where should the Seahawks focus for their first offseason move?

Ficken, 26, first signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State in 2016. He was last with the Los Angeles Rams, though was waived in Oct. 2018. He has made three of six career field goals (50%) and 14 of 15 career extra-point attempts (94%).

It wouldn’t be out of the norm for Seattle to carry two kickers through training camp. In fact, the team made a similar move last year. The Seahawks opted not to re-sign kicker Blair Walsh, who had an uneven performance in his single season in Seattle, and instead signed free agent kicker Jason Myers to a reserve/future contract. In April, they signed former Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski, 40, to a one-year deal. Both kickers competed through the offseason and training camp before Myers was ultimately waived.

If Seattle moves on from Janikowski, who is set to become a free agent in March, they will have their third kicker in three years in 2019.

Wow, 3 of 6 fields in his career. Almost as good a kicking resume as Vinatieri.

But I bet Ficken is more flexible and quick than Janikowski :P

That's a hell of a lot better than kickers in Chicago. They went 0 for 100 :!: :shock: :oops:
Some hilarious videos in this article.

100 Chicagoans thought they could make Cody Parkey's kick. They were hilariously wrong.

The Parkey-inspired field goal challenge:

When Cody Parkey smacked the left upright, then the crossbar, last Sunday, Goose Island employee Zac Connelly was a few beers in. “Just the perfect amount,” he told Yahoo Sports Saturday as the Goose Island taproom filled with wannabe kickers.
At least 100 tried. Fighting snow and a headwind, every single one failed. And many did so in hilarious fashion.

Just watched all the vids again in this Yahoo article. You cannot help but guffaw loudly.

People falling on their asss. One "kicker" kicked the football into a guy's nutsack!

LOL... that might be the biggest reason that Seabass is gone. He has only one tackle in like 20 years of football. That doesn't come without effort to avoid tackling.

Yeah pretty ironic that in a season where we wanted to reset the team and go with a young hungry group that they decided to go with a 40 year old broken-down overweight kicker who refused to even make an effort to tackle
