Alex henery will be okay as Eagles kicker in 2014...

I'm not exactly going out on a limb here, but I think Alex Henery will be better and stronger as a placekicker/kickoff guy in 2014.

Philadelphia Eagles kicker Alex Henery, the 2011 fourth round draft pick (120th overall) out of Nebraska, is consistently a subject of controversy in Philadelphia. He went through last year’s training camp without any opposition, a concept that seemed to go against the grain of Chip Kelly’s overall philosophy of “competition”.
