Report: Zach Hocker’s job with Saints safe for another week
The New Orleans Saints held place kicking tryouts throughout the week, specifically bringing in Randy Bullock and Kai Forbath. As for Zach Hocker, well, he had to anxiously await word on whether or not he’d still have his job in New Orleans.
Fortunately for Hocker, as Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports, the Saints have decided not to make a kicking change yet.

The move comes after Hocker missed a 30-yard field goal with just seconds remaining against the Dallas Cowboys that sent the game to overtime. Fortunately, the Saints still won the game, but Hocker’s job will remain up a question mark until he gives the team a reason to be confident in the young kicker.
