Brandon Bogotay From College Back Up To NFL Starter?

Brandon Bogotay Back Up Kicker at U. of Georgia Behind Blair Walsh Signs
Free Agent Contract with Cleveland Browns After 2013 Free Agent Combine
On March 26, 2013 I held my 2013 Free Agent Combine in Phoenix, Arizona.  A week or so later
Brandon Bogotay a Free Agent Kicker from the University of Georgia had two workouts lined up with the Seattle Seahawks and the Cleveland Browns.

After excellent workouts both teams offered Brandon a Free Agent Contract.

Cleveland was so impressed with Brandon's 2013 Free Agent Combine and private workouts they offered him a highly unlikely signing bonus.

When Brandon asked me what he should do I replied, "Make decisions based upon opportunity and not money." 

Brandon was flattered with the signing bonus but made his decision based upon where he felt his best chances of being the starting Kicker.  And that would be in Cleveland.

In May I wrote a blog about Brandon Bogotay and 'A Speciaist's Path To Pro Football'.  Click To Read Brandon's Blog.

Now, in August Cleveland Sports writers are writing articles about Brandon and his quest to be Cleveland's starting kicker.  Brandon in his first start had a good game kicking a 43 yard field goal and putting his first two kickoffs out of the end zone.  Brandon tweaked his groin on one of his kickoffs and the team decided to sit him out the rest of the game.
