90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Caleb Sturgis

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at kicker Caleb Sturgis.

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.

CALEB STURGIS

2014 Review:

2014 was Sturgis' second year with the Dolphins.

As the teams kicker, he appeared in all 16 games. He attempted 37 field goals and mad 29 of them.

Why he might progress:

Right now, Sturgis is a league-average kicker.

Perhaps he will finally turn the corner and turn into a consistent kicker for this team.

Why he might regress:

He always seems to have some sort of injury. Maybe this is the reason he misses so many field goals. Heck, he just got hurt again during a kickball tournament.

Kickers have to stay healthy, which shouldn't be that hard to do.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Whenever Sturgis comes up to kick a field goal, I am always nervous, even with little chip shots. I don't trust him as a kicker and I hope the team sees that. The team needs to add a veteran kicker. I don't believe Sturgis will be the Dolphins kicker this season.

So, what do you think will happen to Caleb Sturgis. Does he make your roster or not? Feel free to discuss below.
