The Facts: There's going to be another kicking competition in training camp this summer. Sixth-round selection Mason Crosby, a strong-legged place-kicker who played in the thin air at the University of Colorado, will try to unseat Rayner.
Diehards Line:A year ago, Rayner came to Green Bay as a street free agent and won the job in camp over veteran Billy Cundiff. Rayner made 26 of 35 field goals (74.3 percent) in 2006 as Ryan Longwell's replacement and seemingly had a strong grip on the job for 2007. That changed Sunday when GM Ted Thompson took Crosby at No. 193 overall. "It was a value pick," Thompson said, adding he was not unhappy with Rayner. "It was a way to bring in competition. That's what it's going to be -- competition." Crosby, who has a soccer background, was rated by some scouts as the top kicker in the draft but was the third and final kicker selected.
