The Drew Kaser Mystery Has Been Solved
Leave it Demovsky too get to the bottom of this one. The Green Bay Packers signed punter Drew Kaser on Saturday, filling up their final open roster spot.
They still have punter JK Scott on the roster. Why do you need two punters?
You don’t and Kaser won’t be around for long. He was signed as a second option because Scott’s wife is due to have a baby pretty much any moment now. If those wheels start turning, Scott is going to dip out to be with his wife.
With JK Scott's wife due to have a baby, that's why the Packers signed P Drew Kaser on Saturday. Still not clear who will punt tonight as both made the trip. https://t.co/5u27hUd69U

Based on this information, it would seem logical that Kaser would be the Packers punter against New England. What if Scott’s wife goes into labor during the game and he wants to leave, but he’s the only active punter? Then the Packers would pretty much be screwed.
It’s been noted by several sources that the Packers won’t have both punters active for the game. That would be a waste of a roster spot.
So it looks like Kaser kicks for a game and then gets released. Then maybe the Packers can make a run at Bruce Irvin.
