'Cop' could win Birds punting job

Special teams coach Bobby April sure sounded like the punting job was Ken Parrish’s to lose, not Sav Rocca's.

Without a lot of prodding April gave a detailed analysis of the competition between Rocca, the punter since 2007 and Parrish, the former Stroudsburg Area cop.

“Certainly Sav is the incumbent and he’s punting tremendously," April said after the Monday morning practice. "But Parrish is punting tremendously, as well. I think his ability to kickoff could be a factor. I think it’s a real strong competition.”

April also said Parish has shown "he can punt for this team or any team in the NFL."
