Punter Matt Bosher has a rocket leg that could probably punt a football over nearby mountains. Similar to the the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Bosher has a huge hit that can be talked about for years. In a way, the Mighty Mighty Boshtones is better than his namesake, because he can dish out multiple hits.

Take that, ska-punk band that was a real stretch to fit for a bad joke.

Bosher may have one of the best legs in the league. He tied for the third longest punt in the league last season. He is one of the few punters that can deliver a hit in open field. Only 28, Bosher is one of the few players the team drafted between 2010 and 2012 that earned a second contract with the team.

That second contract is very reasonable at 5 years, $12.655 million. According to Spotrac, Bosher comes in at 11th highest average salary for a punter. This is an easy one: Bosher should return to Atlanta in 2016.
