Frost bitten- GB Packers to cut underperforming punter

Will Green Bay give Derrick Frost a plane ticket to somewhere sunny as a parting gift? From AP-

The Green Bay Packers have seen enough from inconsistent punter Derrick Frost.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday the team was going to cut Frost and replace him with another player this week. McCarthy said Frost, who was signed when the team cut Jon Ryan just before the season opener in September, performed well in practices but couldn’t carry it over to games.

Frost has had only eight punts downed inside the 20-yard line all season, tying him for 29th in the league. He averaged 42.1 yards per punt and 36.1 net yards, putting him outside the league’s top 20 in both categories.

The Packers are still in the hunt in the weak NFC central. I doubt the reason for it is their Frost’s poor stats. Kickers often make easy scapegoats.
