The Cardinals had a handful of kickers in to try out a couple of weeks ago, including YouTube sensation Havard “Kickalicious” Rugland. They finally signed one — but it wasn’t Rugland. The Cards got a futures deal done with Southern Mississippi product Danny Hrapmann, who spent a couple of training camps with the Pittsburgh Steelers and who has also kicked for New Orleans of the Arena Football League. Hrapmann made all six of his field goals in the 2012 preseason and didn’t get a chance to try one last season.
As of now, Hrapmann is the lone placekicker the Cardinals have under contract for 2014, since veteran Jay Feely is set to become a free agent in March. It is no surprise the Cardinals signed at least one other kicker besides Feely. The question will become if Feely is also brought back, and/or if the Cards look in any other direction.
