Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey had a miserable end to the 2017 season, going only 7-for-12 on field goals to end the year. This cost Bailey the all-time lead in field goal percentage, losing it to Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker.
Everything just wasn’t the same for Bailey when he came back from his groin injury.
Now, Bailey says he is all set and ready to go, saying, “As far as the weight room and all that stuff, the offseason training, I’ve actually improved in a lot of areas. I feel healthy, I feel good, just looking forward to get going come training camp.”
Cowboys fans would love for this to be true, but how much weight can we put in these words? For all we know, he could just be saying that so he can keep his job.
Until Dan Bailey proves that his groin is no longer bothering him and he can make field goals at a consistent clip again, the kicking situation for the Dallas Cowboys should remain a big question mark.
When you end a season like this, you need to prove to everyone that you still have it.
