Who Does Mike Nugent Think He Is?

LaddCorrespondent IFebruary 25, 2009

Jets kicker Mike Nugent is acting like, well, not a kicker.

“Kicker Mike Nugent has declined an offer from the Jets to return and will test the free-agent market, The Star-Ledger has learned.

‘I have so much respect for the organization and my teammates, but I feel it might be time for me to move on. 

(General manager) Mike (Tannenbaum,) (director of football operations) Ari (Nissim,) and the coaches have been incredibly understanding of my decision process and I am really grateful to them.’”

Who do you think you are, Nuge? You’re not a quarterback. Or a receiver. Or a running back. Or even an NFL player, really. 

You’re a kicker. You’re the NFL’s version of a Chinese concubine.

You have limited rights. Your status is recognized, but only minimally. You don’t go off into the wild, you take what you can get.

That said, I have nothing against Chinese concubines. They are very loyal. And they have great feet.
