    My favorite kicker ever. Graduated from my alma mater (Georgia Southern) and then became a great kicker for my favorite NFL team. I had him for years on my fantasy teams.

    I always hated but respected him, mainly cause I hate the Titans and I knew when he kicked it was automatic. I was also for him coming here when Randy was kicking terribly. Terrible loss though, praying for his family

    He never played for the Oilers. He was a Titan.

    RIP

    The son-in-law of Terry Bradshaw and how ironic he talked about him a couple weeks ago.

    RIP

    I've had the pleasure of meeting Rob several times
    In Nashville. I know his best friend and I
    Can say that he was a very nice and generous person.

    clearly your first time, at least now you can pick up a kicker that's actually on a team.
