The Broncos signed punter Karl Schmitz on Thursday, it was announced. If you thought signing an undrafted tight end out of the GNAC was an obscure move by the Broncos, wait until you get a load of this guy.
Schmitz is a former member of the Jacksonville University Dolphins, who play in the Pioneer Football League. He played for them in 2008 (!), and made such an impression that they don't even have his name spelled correctly in their archives.
The official site says Schmitz handled both punts and kickoffs for Jacksonville that season (2008!), but the Dolphins' stats don't credit him with any punts. Rather, it shows just 11 kickoffs, for a meager 54.7-yard average. Of course, that was seven years ago, and presumably, he's since added some leg strength.
The Bermuda native has worked with former Jaguars and Bills placekicker Mike Hollis. If you're into kicking porn, here are some videos of him working out, plus some scouting tidbits and workout stats.
