You might remember when I told you about Fabrizio Scaccia and his famed 68-yard field goal that was caught on film during a semipro game(see below). But if you don’t recall, yeah, I can’t really blame you (the only reason I remember him is because of his fabulous name).
Anyway, Scaccia – who was signed last year to the 49ers practice squad – made some news today, re-signing with the Arena Football League’s Arizona Rattlers.
Scaccia is the fourth NFLer to sign with the AFL joining Browns WR Rod Windsor (a teammate of Scaccia’s last year with the Rattlers), Cowboys WR Troy Bergeron and Cardinals OL Cliff Louis as the lockout continues, and for now, he feels pretty good about it.
"Windsor did it first," Scaccia said, via CSNBayarea.com. "I did a little more investigating. I talked to my family and I see nothing but positives in joining the league."
When the lockout ends, Scaccia presumably will battle Joe Nedney for the starting kicking spot.
But for now, at least he’s got a job.
