  • Tynes trades to G-men?

    Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Tuesday that the club has traded K Lawrence Tynes to the N.Y. Giants for future considerations.

    Tynes (6-1, 202) played in 48 regular season games and one postseason contest in three seasons (2004-06) with Kansas City. He converted 68 of 87 field goals (78.2%) and 137 of 141 PATs for 341 points. He ranks fourth in Chiefs history with 68 career field goals and is fifth in team annals with 136 PATs. Tynes stands fourth in team lore with six field goals of 50+ yards, booting two each the last three seasons. The Greenock, Scotland native connected on 27 of 33 field goals (81.8%) and 44 of 45 PATs for a career-high 125 points in 2005. He kicked two game-winning field goals a year ago, including a career-long 53-yarder vs. San Diego (10/22/06), the second-longest game-winning kick in Chiefs history. He also earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors when he had a 19-yard field goal at Arizona (10/8/06).

    Tynes spent two seasons (2002-03) with the Ottawa Renegades of the Canadian Football League, playing in 26 contests. He converted 71 of 87 field goals (81.6%) and all 51 PATs for 275 points. He also played in 10 games for the Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe in 2002. He originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Kansas City in 2001.

    The Troy State product connected on 45 of 62 field goals (72.6%) and 127 of 131 PATs for 262 points during his four-year collegiate career for the Trojans. Tynes was a standout kicker at Milton High School in Milton, Florida.

    <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
    <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

      Wow...we are amassing quite a few late round picks for next year. Glad to see that Peterson was able to get something for a guy we were going to cut anyway.

        Sweet we all ready have two future draft picks one for Sims and now one for Tynes I'm sure they are both very late picks but still cool.

            He is very up and down but more down then up he had a game two years ago that he nailed two from 50 but then this year he missed a few short kicks the nail in the coffin was missing a 23 yard kick in the playoffs. I still feel he could be a good kicker but he needs to show up each and every week and stop with the every other week stuff.

              Yea, here's the story of his last season:
              Kickin' fifty yard field goals to knock out the best team in the NFC(Chargers)
              in the playoffs..misses a 20? yard field goal
              hate him back, it works for me.
