@MoveTheSticks @phil_dawson_4 is an awesome teammate and friend-really really good in awful conditions too.

This is why this is such a great signing! BIG TIME IN CRAP CONDITIONS!

The Dawson signing and Boldin trade are the only Niners moves I like so far this off-season.

It's hard to get super excited by the primarily ST guys (other than Dawson) signings but once our coverage unit takes a huge step up it will be huge

Don't like the Skuta signing? He appears to be a ST stud and we need one of those desperately.
lol @ people complaining. He was the AFC pro bowl kicker. He hit a perfect 20 for 20 from 40-49 yds last year, and was 7 for 7 from 50+.

In the last 2 years, hes 14 for 15 from beyond 50. This is great news. Hes 38, but good kickers can go until their mid-40's.
We needed a kicker badly. Our GM goes out and signs a damn good kicker and people are complaining because we didn't use one of our draft picks on one instead? Smh.

Highly doubt that. Dawson is a premier kicker in the NFL. They may bring in an undrafted guy like a Tavecchio or someone like that, but I think you can cross kicker off the list as a need at this point. Unless Dawson has some weird injury or regresses like Akers did, he should be good for 2-3 seasons.

Yep, bring in someone like Tavecchio during training camp and pre-season just to save Dawson's leg a bit. No doubt about it though Dawson is our guy hopefully for 2-3 years. Love the signing just hope he isn't getting the 3.5-4 mil I thought he would get.

And yeah people will complain because we will pay big money instead of using a 7th or get a udfa that will be the next Tucker, Zuerlein or Walsh. It's pretty rare to have 3 rookie kickers perform like that. I guess people think they grow on trees. Almost all rookie kickers struggle and there are a ton of drafted kickers that don't ever work out... those 3 are rare exceptions. Sturgis (79.5) and Hopkins (78.5) career averages are a bit lower than Dawson's 84. Part of me said will have a more explosive offense so we won't have to rely on fg's as much so we could save money and go with a rookie. Another says we will be playing a lot of tough teams including playoff games; a lot of games will come down to 3 points.

He's OK, I guess. Seems to be more versatile than Costanzo, but strictly as a ST player (and I think he will only be playing ST for us), I'm not sure if he is as good as Costanzo.
I'm fine with the pick, just not very excited.
Like the pickup! Kind of wished we could take a chance at a kicker in the draft but hey this guy is proven.

If he's playing beyond special teams we've got problems

In my mind Stuka is the upgrade over Gooden and Dahl an upgrade over McBath. I'm still hoping we get Grant back

i am surprised someone is not running around like a crazy person trying to put together a video package of the two kicks he missed in order to justify the fact this was a bad signing
