Nate KaedingÃ‚Â has announced that he will retire from the NFL. Kaeding spent most of his nine year career with the San Diego Chargers. Most recently the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had signed Nate, but due to a nagging groin injury Kaeding decided to hang up his cleats. Kaeding was one of the leagues most accurate kickers in the regular season, however in the playoffs he was a mess.
Nate Kaeding is someone whom the chargers wish they could forget. He single handedly gave fans depression. Kaeding could be counted on every game of the regular season to come in and make every kind of field goal. However when the playoffs came around, its almost as if Kaeding lost all sense of feeling in his foot. Kaeding was eventually replaced by Nick Novack. In the Novack era the chargers have not made it to the playoffs. Time will tell if he can do any better than Kaeding.
