Hey, you ginger fuck. You’re cut!
We imagine that’s what Big Ted told punter Tim Masthay when he released him today.
This comes a day after the Green Bay Packers released their other punter, Peter Mortell.
So who’s the punter?
The Packers claimed Schum off waivers from Tampa Bay.
Schum. Rhymes with chum, which are fish guts you throw into the water when you’re trying to attract sharks.
And this is great. Makes perfect sense.
Mortell averaged 45.1 yards per kick in the preseason. Masthay averaged 42.8. Schum has averaged 42.1 and averaged 41.9 in 2015, his lone season in the league.
So this was definitely done in the proper order. You first release the guy with the best average and then work your way back until you can sign the guy with the worst average.
Big Ted! Outsmarting everyone once again!
