Special teams coach Brad Seely said of the situation, "Will he kick for us? Well, that remains to be seen. But it's a competition, and we're seeing who's best. Obviously, Sebastian has done this for a long time and has been really good. Obviously, he's the front-runner." Tavecchio has become an NFL travel man, as he is in his fifth training camp with his fourth different team.
