Andrew Franks Earns Job as Dolphins Kicker
News broke this weekend that kicker Andrew Franks has won the starting kicker job for the Miami Dolphins.
Franks was an undrafted free agent this season after a stellar collegiate career at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI).
He beat out Caleb Sturgis, who had the job for two seasons, kicking to a 77.4 percent rate on field goals.
Asked by the Sun-Sentinel if he was confident that he would win the job after a good performance against Tampa Bay this preseason, Franks replied: "I don't think I was very certain at all, honestly. I think me and Caleb both worked extremely hard at what we do. We both had a really good camp. In my opinion, it could have gone either way."
Franks went 3-3 on field goals during the preseason. He connected on two field goals against the Falcons, including hitting a 51-yarder. He also hit a field goal against the Bucs.
