At a position where there are always more qualified candidates than job openings, NFL kickers know there's no such thing as job security. Franks doesn't have to worry at the moment, but that could change quickly. As the Palm Beach Post noted, while he did fine last year and made some huge field goals late in the season, the team is aggressively looking for any opportunity to make even modest improvements. Franks made 16 of 21 field goals last season, but Miami seemed to hesitate sending Franks out for longer kicks. He ended up 2 for 5 on kicks 40 yards or longer during the regular season and did hit a 47-yarder in the Dolphins' playoff game. The Dolphins looked at free agent and draft-eligible kickers, but didn't take any. (They did, however, sign undrafted punter Matt Haack to compete with Matt Darr.) Franks, who came in as an undrafted free agent in 2015, has made 29 of 37 field goals in his Dolphins career. He is only 7 for 13 on kicks of 40-plus yards. Consider him a bye-week filler at best.
