The Seattle Seahawks signed kicker Blair Walsh on Thursday, raising the possibility that free agent Steven Hauschka won’t return.
Hauschka, the Seahawks’ kicker for the past six seasons, was 33-of-37 on field goals and 29-of-35 on extra points last year. He missed a game-winning 27-yarder Oct. 24 at Arizona, in a game that ended up a 6-6 tie.
Walsh had his own struggles last season, going 12-of-16 on field goals and 15-of-19 on extra points before being released by the Minnesota Vikings. Walsh famously missed a game-winning 27-yarder against the Seahawks in a 2015 NFC wild-card loss.
Understandably, Seattle fans were stuck trying to put a positive spin on The Blair Walsh Project: Part 2.
