In the most Patriots move of all-time, Bill Belichick has invited a kicker who hasn’t played a down of football past high school to mini-camp. His name is Josh Gable and he specializes in post trick-shot kicks on the internet. I fully expect him to now become a hall of famer.
In recent weeks, he’s been playing in the Indoor Football League for the Nebraska Danger and apparently he’s crushing it. That caught the eye of Hoodie and now he’s on his way to Foxborough.
Gable’s agent, Brad Berkowitz, said Wednesday he believes Gable is capable of kicking in the NFL and just needs a chance. The Patriots are curious enough to have invited Gable to their upcoming minicamp, which includes rookies.
Berkowitz has aggressively pursued NFL opportunities for the 26-year-old Gable and says multiple teams have inquired. As part of his sales pitch, he has relayed numerous videos, with two notable ones showing Gable cranking an 80-yard field goal and showcasing his accuracy by consistently nailing tall light poles, and doing so midway up the poles.
We’re onto the videos.
