The long and glorious place-kicking reign of Sebastian Janikowski could end in 2016.
For the second consecutive offseason , the Oakland Raiders have signed 25-year-old Cal product Giorgio Tavecchio to a future's deal. It indicates they think he's a kicker worth keeping.
It could also mean the post-Seabass era is closing in. Janikowski missed an uncharacteristic amount of gimme field goals in 2015, including two huge misses in Week 5 that sealed a Denver Broncos win.
The Raiders could save nearly $8 million over the course of 2016 and 2017 if they release their longtime kicker.
