NFL: July 26 Jacksonville Jaguars Training Camp

Most players get more than four days of training camp to show what they can do, but the Jaguars rookie kicker Andrew Mevis didn’t have a training camp start like most players.

Mevis was cut by the Jaguars just four days into camp after a disastrous start that saw reporters at the scene describe him as missing wildly, with field goals short, missing wide and, in one instance, hitting former Cowboys head coach Dave Campo, who is commentating for a local radio station and was on the sidelines of the practice field.

Several reporters at the scene described Mevis missing kicks and not even getting close.

Mevis spent four years at Fordham before transferring to Iowa State last year, and he had a good enough final season in college that the Jaguars thought he was worth sign. But his disastrous training camp could make Jacksonville his first and last stop in the NFL.
