Berger averaged 42 yards a kick last year, not 44.5. In the NFL that is still very good.
He makes close to $500,000/year in the NFL with a great pension. What would be his motivation to move his family to Hamilton for $50,000/year?
Berger is tied for 28th out of 40 in the NFL for 2009, so below average on yards per punt, but for his net average he's tied for 18th. Rather impressive that some average NFL punter makes almost half a million eh?
Berger was the Bombers first pick in the 1994 draft and since he's never signed a contract with a CFL team or played in the CFL the Bombers would still own his rights (unless they traded them years ago).
