Siposs was overlooked throughout the three-day NFL Draft, with only two punters selected in the entire seven rounds, but was among the first players to sign with a team as an undrafted free agent in the aftermath.
Defensive End too. Getting sick of the majority being punters.No mention yet, but there's an Aussie on the Eagles roster as part of the Pathway program : Matt Leo

As most people know, money ain’t everything, so hopefully he’s happy with his work/life situation.

Haha, don’t even remember posting that. Based on the timestamp, I can report that I was heavily intoxicated when I did.
I do hope he likes the states, is probably all I was thinking at the time. We’re big fans of his, I promise you that.
Theres a group in Brisbane Called Endzone Academy that have gotten 4 guys D1 scholarships (as non punters) in the last couple years. Making a start on this whole thing. Should see a few more in the league in 5-10 years.
