    Question about position changes

    If I'm unable to sign a K, can I move a low rated player from another position to K. All players have 40 KPW/KA, which is only slightly worse than the mid 40s a walk on K will have. I'd rather do that then have to take a walk on that I'll have to cut after I spend next season recruiting a replacement.

    What's the difference from taking a walk-on kicker and moving another player over?

    I'd much rather take the walk-on kicker and take a chance of him actually having some sort of leg...

    I've simmed about 10 seasons and never seen a walk on with more than 48 KPW. I'd rather use the roster spot to go after a 3 star recruit who might be worth a damn.

    7 before and 3 after, walkon kickers and punters didn't appear to be affected.

    If you'd rather I take a walk on that's cool, my punter will be filling both duties either way.

    I guess I just don't like that the guy you move to K might be able to play at the bottom of the depth chart at another position. I guess it's not a huge advantage, though...

    No worries, if you think it's a problem, I'll take a walk on kicker. That's why I asked, just wanted to be sure.

    Kickers were tuned in the PATCH, not the tuner set.

    I think to keep it sim, you should have a kicker. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a coach who would go into the season w/o a kicker on their roster. Also, the patch made it so all kickers can hit a 30 yarder, so even with the 48 kp, you'll still be able to get 3 from a reasonable distance.

    Consider me the guinea pig then, I will take a walk on, since I couldn't land any of the 10 kickers I tried to recruit.

    As long as you have a punter and kicker on your roster, I don't care who actually kicks it...
