WATCH: Panthers backup punter Jordan Gay booms one eight yards

The NFL preseason is for coaches to evaluate talent, trim the roster, and work the kinks out on offense, defense, and special teams. Some say it’s too long or unnecessary, but there is no other way to evaluate players who are on the roster bubble in game situations. That being said, mistakes are aplenty throughout the four weeks of preseason, and as usual, kickers are the butt...

After a short pass from Alex Smith, Dwayne Bowe took...
