On Monday the Packers released Mason Crosby’s main camp competitor, Georgio Tavecchio. Crosby did not take the competition change lightly though, out performing Rookie Zach Rameriz at practice on Tuesday.
Correction. Ramirez actually went 6 of 16 today. Ouch. Tavecchio didn’t miss back2backs all month. Crosby is 14 of 14.. — Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) August 27, 2013
During Tuesday’s practice, Crosby hit a 64 yarder, while Rameriz missed 10 kicks, including a 35 yarder and kicking short on a 58 yarder.
Mike McCarthy said on Monday that the Packers still considered Tavecchio as an option at kicker, despite releasing him. If Tavecchio clears waivers Tuesday, the Packers still have the option of bringing him back in, should Crosby stuggle in the pre-season finale Thursday night.
