Lions' kicker battle remains too close to call

Throughout training camp, the Detroit Lions' kicker battle between Nate Freese and Giorgio Tavecchio has been pretty even. It's also been pretty even through the first half of the preseason.

Packers release rookie kicker Giorgio Tavecchio

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The results would indicate that the Green Bay Packers just released their most accurate field-goal kicker.

Tavecchio giving Crosby a good fight to be the Packers' kicker

Giorgio Tavecchio gets butterflies even in practice. He cares that much. There's never a comfortable feeling. There's always some tension.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Giorgio Tavecchio laughed it off, but it probably wasn't a good sign for the young Green Bay Packers kicker that coach Mike McCarthy didn't know his name.Sergio.

Packers' kicker preferred the other football

GREEN BAY, Wis. New Green Bay Packers kicker Giorgio Tavecchio had no interest in football growing up. He didn't watch it and he certainly didn't play it.
