my prob with Prater is that this would have been a really good year to find a young kicker -- especially when you could have tested them in high stakes but still low stakes situations: a game winning kick to go 4-13 instead of 3-14
Don't totally disagree, but when you're already planning to struggle on offense and you're trying to evaluate the other talent, you need a reliable kicker to help get small wins within the game and build confidence is the undermanned roster.

Eh I like Matt Prater and I want to have at least a few guys I like on the roster.

I did not realise Divaad Wilson played every snap at outside corner.

He's a rookie that played as a Freshman for Georgia before transferring to UCF. Was signed by Jags as a UDFA but released on cut day and signed to our PS.

Considering Prater is still booming kicks of 50+ yards, it doesn't seem unrealistic to believe he could still have a couple good seasons left. Plus he is a big reason the Cards won Kyler's first game back.(4/4 including two 50+ FGs). This year he is 5/5 from 40-49 and 7/9 from 50+. Oh and he did a great onside kick against the Ravens.

The punter Gillikin seems to be doing a pretty good job as well.
