Special teams player damn near have to be perfect to ensure their spot on any NFL team, but it makes it so much worse when you’re undrafted and have very little room to make mistakes.
Carolina Panthers punter Joseph Charlton may have just kicked himself off the team.
According to Brett Jensen of WBT Radio, Charlton has been struggling for the past few days and made things even worse with his punt on Monday.
Charlton took the long snap and shanked the punt so badly that you could hear somebody say “oh jeez.”
Charlton was an undrafted free agent out of South Carolina following three straight years as the Gamecocks’ starter. He punted 171 times and averaged 45.5 yards per punt, with a career-best 47.7 yards per punt in 2019.
