Packers | Sander gets back into the punting race

Sun, 20 Aug 2006 06:32:53 -0700

Jason Wilde, of the Wisconsin State Journal, reports after dominating with distance during the offseason and in the first few weeks of training camp, Green Bay Packers P Jon Ryan may have ceded whatever advantage he had over incumbent P B.J. Sander by dropping a snap on his first attempt while Sander had a steadier, more consistent showing Saturday evening, Aug. 19. On his first punt, following the opening possession of the game, Sander boomed a 61-yarder with 5.1 seconds of hang time.

Packers | Ryan takes aim at Sander's job

Fri, 16 Jun 2006 22:34:00 -0700

Todd Rosiak, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports Green Bay Packers P Jon Ryan is taking aim at earning the team's punter job. To do so, he'll have to beat out incumbent P B.J. Sander. Although he has no previous NFL experience, the 6-foot, 202-pound Ryan did post impressive numbers in the CFL. He averaged a league-record 50.6 gross yards per punt last season for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, with a long of 82. In 2004, his first in Winnipeg, he booted a 92-yarder. Ryan and Sander have had limited opportunities thus far to punt in a team setting but when they have, the results have been inconsistent. Once the Packers' voluntary workouts wrap up Wednesday, June 21, Ryan plans on returning to Canada to train. Consistency is his No. 1 goal.
