Packers | Ryan brought in to improve punting game

Pete Dougherty, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, reports the Green Bay Packers acquired P Jon Ryan in the offseason to challenge the team's incumbent starter, P B.J. Sander. In 2005, Sander put up poor numbers and the team finished No. 30 in the league in gross average per attempt with 39.2 yards to go along with No. 31 in the league in net average with 33.9 yards. Ryan, on the other hand, had an extremely successful season in 2005 in the CFL, breaking the league's single-season punting record with 50.6 yards. Ryan will need to adjust his style to gain more hang time, but he feels he can punt in the NFL and will try to prove it in the offseason.
