    Hodges Released

    Hodges Released
    Monday, October 10, 2005

    By Nick Wagoner

    Rookie punter Reggie Hodges struggled mightily Sunday afternoon against Seattle and that was the last straw. Hodges, who has been inconsistent for most of the season, received his official release Monday afternoon.

    Hodges punted five times for an average of 33.2 yards with a net of 27.6 yards. On 22 punts for the season, Hodges averaged 38 yards a kick with a net of 31 yards. The Seahawks started five drives in Rams’ territory Sunday.

    St. Louis used a sixth-round choice on the punter out of Ball State. No replacement has been signed yet, but the Rams are expected to bring in a punter that has been with the team before. Bryan Barker, who spent part of the preseason competing with Hodges is one candidate.

    With the announcement that head coach Mike Martz is taking an indefinite leave of absence, Hodges’ replacement probably won’t be announced until the team resumes practice Thursday afternoon.

    You can blame Hodges for that loss just as much as anyone else. It's a big relief to see him go.

    I would hope the Rams didn't release their punter without having someone else in mind or having contacted someone else. That said, you have to think there's someone out there capable of getting more yards on punts than Hodges has thus far.
