Tampa Bay Buccaneers PK Nate Kaeding (groin) has decided to retire from professional football after suffering a groin injury a few days ago. 'It's not like I can switch the way I kick, or change this way, or use a different muscle,' Kaeding said. 'Especially for me, and the way I kick, that's the main lever in the kicking motion. It's impossible to avoid it and I've got these chronic issues.'
Huddle Up: The end of the line has come too soon for Kaeding, one of fantasy's top kickers over his first 7 pro seasons, scoring at least 109 points each year.
