Unfortunately for Randy Bullock and Zane Gonzalez, their performance in the preseason and throughout training camp did not merit them joining the 2021 roster.
Many supporters are not keenly aware of roster tricks that organizations can implement in order to keep additional players on the roster.
The Lions were always going to have a kicker on the roster.
Some have suggested that punter Jack Fox assume both roles, in order to allow another player to remain on the roster -- possibly at wide receiver or on defense.
On Wednesday afternoon, Fox took to social media to answer the masses who were wondering if he had the ability to kick field goals.
The video hilariously shows the Lions Pro Bowl punter missing attempt after attempt, possibly in an effort to show the coaching staff he should stick to punting.
Detroit's talented punter emerged last season, despite not really feeling like the job was his until after the bye week.
“I didn’t really have time to think about, like Pro Bowl and all those kind of accolades,” Fox said last season. “I was kind of just focusing one day at a time. One game at a time, I was just really trying not to get cut after that first game. At the same time, like me and Arryn (Siposs) both know that we’re both really talented, and we had the potential to do really well this year, both of us. I don’t think it was outside the realm of possibility. It’s just something I wasn’t really thinking about at the time."
