Saints take a look at kickers with Hartley struggling

Apparently, the Saints are worried about scoring enough points.

While that sounds like a joke after they just dropped 49 on the Cowboys, they are worried about kicker Garrett Hartley at the moment, since he kept them from getting 52.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, they brought in a group of kickers including Shayne Graham, Neil Rackers and Derek Dimke Tuesday.

Hartley’s 16-of-22 on field goals this season, including 6-of-10 from 40-49 yards. But he’s missed four of his last six, including at least one each of the last three weeks.

Even if they don’t sign one, word of the workouts will get his attention.
