Bears signed K Olindo Mare.
Mare, who will be 40 in June, beat out Neil Rackers and Billy Cundiff at a Tuesday tryout. He replaces Robbie Gould, who pulled a calf muscle while warming up for last week's game against the Vikings. Mare was last seen in Carolina during training camp, where he lost the placekicking gig to Justin Medlock. Mare went just 6-of-9 on field goals from 30-39 yards out with the Panthers in 2011, costing them at least two wins. Tue, Dec 11, 2012 01:21:00 PM

Panthers released K Olindo Mare.

Justin Medlock will handle kicking duties unless the Panthers opt for one of the released veterans such as Billy Cundiff. Mare is among the most experienced kickers in the league, but shanked a number of critical kicks in 2011, and was due an untenable $2.1 million. A journeyman sixth-year pro, Medlock will be on the radar as a streaming option in the Panthers' ascendant offense.

Olindo Mare has been consistently short on field-goal attempts of 50 yards or more during camp.

Mare missed both of his attempts from 50-plus yards last season and hit on just 78.6 percent of his field goals overall. Even though the Panthers' high-powered offense should yield plenty of attempts, fantasy owners can find more reliable options.

Coach Ron Rivera is pleased with the way Olindo Mare has responded to competition with Adi Kunalic the past few weeks.

"I think bringing Adi back has maybe helped him to refocus," explained Rivera. The Panthers plan to keep Kunalic around throughout the offseason and training camp, so Mare can't afford to stumble next summer. His 2011 performance should have GM Marty Hurney thinking twice about handing out $4 million guaranteed to a kicker.

Coach Ron Rivera said Olindo Mare and Adi Kunalic will continue to compete during the week to see who will be the Panthers' kicker on gamedays.

Mare didn't attempt any field goals in Week 15, but did make all four of his extra points. He's still on thin ice due to his 76.0 conversion rate on field goals this season.
Mon, Dec 19, 2011 12:22:00 PM

Olindo Mare will be the Panthers' kicker in Sunday's Week 15 game against the Texans.

Mare won a mid-week competition with newly-signed rookie Adi Kunalic to retain his job this week. Regardless, we'd avoid Mare in fantasy formats. His confidence has to be shaken after missing multiple crucial kicks this season.
Sun, Dec 18, 2011 12:08:00 PM

Coach Ron Rivera "hinted" Friday that Olindo Mare will remain the Panthers' kicker in Week 15, but said the team won't officially decide until Saturday.

Recently signed undrafted rookie Adi Kunalic would be the alternative. "Olindo has kicked the ball well," said Rivera. "Bringing Adi in, he's kicked it pretty good but a little concerned about him being just a little bit sore." Ideally, this is a situation to avoid in fantasy football leagues.

Coach Ron Rivera will meet with GM Marty Hurney today to discuss the future of K Olindo Mare.

With 5:16 left Sunday and the Panthers down 24-23, Mare pulled a 36-yard field goal wide left. He also missed a 31-yarder with the Panthers trailing by three as time expired against the Vikings in Week 8. Even though Hurney signed Mare to a four-year, $12 million contract in July, the Panthers need to hold an open tryout Tuesday.
Mon, Dec 12, 2011 12:55:00 PM

Panthers agreed to terms with K Olindo Mare on a four-year, $12 million contract, including a $4 million signing bonus.

The Panthers got a break on Cam Newton's salary with the new rookie wage system, allowing GM Marty Hurney to overspend to the max. Mare's signing will lead to the departure of long-time Panther John Kasay, who was due $2 million this year. Mare has drilled an impressive 87.9 percent of his field goals over the past three years and possesses a strong kickoff leg. He's an upgrade.

The Seahawks have moved on from free agent K Olindo Mare, their franchise player last season.

Mare banged home 25-of-30 field goals last season while playing for $2.8 million, but the Seahawks didn't deem the 38-year-old worthy of a long-term commitment. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Mare will sign with a yet-to-be disclosed team.
Wed, Jul 27, 2011 01:37:00 PM

Free agent K Olindo Mare said he would give the Seahawks a "hometown discount" once a labor agreement is reached.

Mare has four kids and doesn't want to uproot them from the Seattle area. He made 25-of-30 field goals last season while earning $2.8 million. "The Seahawks gave me an opportunity. I always take that into consideration also. But we'll see. I have to get a offer first," Mare said.
Mon, Mar 28, 2011 11:25:00 AM

The Seahawks will not use their franchise tag before Thursday's deadline.

They're not willing to give free agent K Olindo Mare another 120-percent raise after franchising him last year. Seattle would likely still want to retain him at the right price. Mare went 25-for-30 on field goals last season.
Wed, Feb 23, 2011 06:36:00 PM

Seahawks K Olindo Mare "wasn't close" on three separate field-goal tries from 47 yards in Soldier Field's south end zone as he warmed up Sunday.

It's a little alarming for the Seahawks since wind is not expected to be a big factor in Chicago. Mare was 6-of-9 on field goals of 40-plus yards this season, but only two came from beyond 43. It's a big concern, as Seattle's offense isn't exactly a well-oiled machine, and touchdowns are likely to be scarce. Distance is rarely a problem for Chicago kicker Robbie Gould, who connected on three field goals of at least 50 yards in 2010.
Sun, Jan 16, 2011 12:16:00 PM

Seahawks K Olindo Mare has been held out of practice the past two days with a left hamstring injury.

The good news is that injury isn't to Mare's kicking leg and the Seahawks have yet to sign another kicker. Expect Mare to handle field-goal duties again this week.
Thu, Dec 16, 2010 06:52:00 PM

Olindo Mare sat out Saturday's preseason game with a sore calf.

Camp leg Clint Stitser replaced Mare. This is the first we've heard of an injury to the starter and we suspect he was held out as a mere precaution. You shouldn't be drafting Mare in fantasy anyway due to the Seahawks' suspect offense.
