Sauerbrun, who has has some off-the-field issues in his past, joins New England after Ken Walter was placed on injured reserve this week. The Patriots addressed the off field issues as a non-factor, opting to sign Sauerbrun as the best available punter out there.

When the special teams unit has a bad day, it can pour over into other aspects of the game. Such was the case for the Patriots last Sunday when they never had a chance to get on track due to poor field position. The Dolphins had plenty of opportunity mainly because of New England's struggle sin the punting game. The answer to the problem -- a new punter -- may already be on the roster.

Josh Bidwell was no Craig Hentrich, but he did prove to be a dependable punter during his seasons in Green Bay. Now Bidwell is a Buccaneer, and the Packers' search for a new punter changes from musing into a must-have.
