Could Caleb Sturgis be in danger of losing his roster spot?
The Dolphins today signed kicker John Potter and released kicker Danny Hrapmann.
Potter is more than a mere camp leg while Sturgis recovers from a groin injury. He has a strong leg and is considered very good at kickoffs although his field goal accuracy is questionable.
The Dolphins wanted a legitimate option at kicker in case Sturgis isn’t ready to go for Week 1 or takes a step back from his inconsistent rookie season. Sturgis is expected to kick in Saturday’s preseason game against Tampa Bay.
