New Orleans Saints kicker Garrett Hartley may have booted himself out of job

NEW ORLEANS – Did young Garrett Hartley of the New Orleans Saints kick himself off the team Sunday at the Superdome? Did the hero of the 2009 postseason, the Black and Golden-foot of Super Bowl XLIV, boot himself out of a lucrative, high-profile job?

Those are questions that need to be asked certainly in light of the Saints’ potentially devastating, stunning and dramatic 27-24 loss to the opportunistic Atlanta Falcons in overtime at the Superdome.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Sunday that Saints officials have contacted former Black and Gold kicker John Carney and plan to bring him in for a workout as early as Monday.
