Bill Belichick isn’t opposed to thinking outside the NFL personnel box. In addition to continually mining the waiver wire for gems, he’s drafted a special teams player from Ohio State, and rolled the dice on Chad Johnson.
Even though the NFL Draft just ended, The Hoodie is never done looking to improve the roster. His most recent talent find is about as off the NFL radar as it gets.
Belichick has invited internet trick shot kicker Josh Gable to mini-camp for a tryout. Gable didn’t play in college and is currently kicking with the Nebraska Danger of the Indoor Professional League, which is an actual thing. Bill doesn’t care.
If you watch the videos, Gable nails an 85-yard field goal and bombs a 75-yard punt with good hangtime. It’s not Dude Perfect stuff, this kid has a cannon.
Obviously, it’s a longshot he makes the Pats, but give Belichick credit for not being scared to kick the tires.
Now go shock the world, Josh Gable.
