Neil Rackers



Neil W. Rackers (born August 16, 1976 in Florissant, Missouri) is a placekicker for the Arizona Cardinals. He was selected with the third pick of the sixth round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals out of the University of Illinois.

He has had over 20 touchbacks in a season twice in his career. His streak of consecutive field goals without a miss ended at 31 on November 27, 2005 when he missed a 43-yard field goal against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

On January 1, 2006 Neil kicked his 40th field goal of the season, breaking the NFL record of 39. After the 2005 NFL season, Rackers was rewarded by playing in the 2006 Pro Bowl. ESPN.com also named him the Most Valuable Fantasy Football kicker of 2005.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
