Ryan Succop(notes), the man who was picked dead last in the NFL draft, and thus dubbed "Mr. Irrelevant", will soon be cashing some handsome paychecks. The kicker is expected to sign a three-year deal worth $1.2 million in the next day or so.
Also on the plate for Succop is Irrelevant Week in Newport Beach, California, and that kicks off on Monday. The festival includes a golf tournament, a regatta, a few parties and a banquet/roast in Mr. Irrelevant's honor. Past roasters (correction) have included Bill Walsh, Jim Everett, Mickey Mantle and Merlin Olsen (no Jeff Ross?).
I wonder if Succop, the 256th pick in the draft, ever sends gloating e-mails to Dan Gronkowski(notes), the 255th pick in the draft. "Ha ha! I guess you were just a little too impressive in your workouts, chump. Enjoy anonymity. I'll be at the regatta with Merlin Olsen."
After Irrelevant Week comes and goes, it's back to the grind for Succop. I don't know how much of that $1.2 million is guaranteed, and he still has to beat out Chiefs incumbent kicker Connor Barth(notes) if he wants a spot on the roster. There is work to be done. Life is not all regattas with Merlin Olsen, even if you are Mr. Irrelevant.

I just wish we would settle on one of these young guys and stick with them for more than a few months to a year. We have had a new kicker every season since Tynes went to NY and won a SB ring.

It would be a feather in Pioli's cap if Mr. Irrelevant went to be our Pro Bowl kicker.

I like bold statements like this.

$1.2 mill? Justin Medlock doesn't like this one bit.

I always though Tynes was good enough also.
