Mickey Spags reports that Jerry Jones will never spend big money on a free agent kicker ever again after Vandershank stunk up the place.
"The reason he was here as long as he was here," Jones said of Vanderjagt, 13 of 18 in his 10 games, "was because of the kind of investment we had in him."
I guess we're going back to the cheap route from now on, however, the word on Gramatica is that he looks pretty good.
That's exactly what Jeff Ireland, the team's vice president of scouting, saw when he spent a couple of days during training camp watching the Patriots practice as part of the two team's scouting exchange. The Patriots, in a tough call, decided to go with fourth-round draft choice Stephen Gostkowski instead of Gramatica, who was returning from the abductor and abdominal muscle surgery that cost him the 2005 season.
