After not drafting a kicker, Jerry Jones says team will look to add a veteran

Now that the is over and the did not select a , I wonder what the solution for the might be.

After I begged the team to sign someone for the last few weeks or draft a kicker this past weekend, finally hinted at possible movement regarding a huge need.

Jones said the team would look for a more veteran kicker on Saturday after the draft.

Thank goodness.

Before jumping to conclusions, I want to make sure and contain myself. We know Jerry loves to talk, but this year at least so far, he has backup his words.

Let's dive into a few possible guys who could receive a phone call if the Jones family decides to dial their number.

Robbie Gould

The top guy is clear. is a veteran kicker; yes, he is age 40. However, he has been perfect in the . A place struggled last season.

Throughout 16 playoff games in his career, Gould is 29/29 on field goals and 39/39 on extra points, and how could we forget how fantastic he has been against the Cowboys in the postseason?

Recent comments by Gould could make it a bit tricky. He said he would like to play near his home in Chicago.

The Bears haven't seemed interested, at least not yet, but one other thing he said could give Dallas a chance. He said he wanted to play for a winner.

“Well first, I want to win a , obviously, that means a lot to me,” Gould said of why he still wants to keep playing after 18 seasons. “And secondly, it comes down to wanting to be able to score 2,000 points, maybe hit 500 field goals, and ultimately just win.”

I would do whatever I could to get Gould in the door if I were Jerry. If not Gould, then who?

Mason Crosby

Wouldn't it be so funny if the Cowboys brought in the kicker who has left us fans with heartbreak over the years?

Crosby played under for several years, so this wouldn't be shocking.

The Packers selected Anders Carlson in the on Saturday, so depending on how things work, Crosby might be looking for a new team to call home in 2023.

As of right now, Crosby remains a . He is the Packers' all-time leading scorer with 1,918 points.

Could Dallas get two productive seasons out of Crosby? It is hard to tell; he made just one of four attempts from 50+ yards last season

Ryan Succop

The Buccaneers released in March after three seasons with the team.

Look, I am throwing out names that have been around in this league for some time and have been more than productive. (For the most part).

Succop played in exactly 50 games with the Bucs. He went 84-of-99 on field goal attempts and 132-of-141 on extra points.

In 50 games for the Bucs, he went 84-of-99 on field goal attempts and 132-of-141 on extra points. He even hit the game-winning kick against the Cowboys in the in 2021.

Even the fact Jerry Jones is hinting at the possibility is a good sign. was brought in when Maher started to struggle in the playoffs.

He has hit 11-of-12 of his career field goal attempts and 15-of-20 extra-point tries over four seasons. I would rather have Dallas bring another veteran kicker and let Vizcaino compete with him for the starting job.

What do you think?
