Cameron Van Winkle is in real estate, but wants back into football.
The former Washington kicker made that clear with a video he tweeted Friday. Ever wondered what it’s like to watch a field goal kicked in slow motion? Today is your lucky day, thanks to Van Winkle.

Unlike the fictional character with the same namesake, Van Winkle’s kicks won’t put you to sleep. He made 81.3 percent of field goal attempts (52 of 64) and 98.3 percent of his extra point attempts (171 of 174) during his three years of kicking at Washington, scoring 327 points in his career.
He’s also adept at making the Seattle Seahawks aware of his availability.
Hi @Seahawks I'm still available

He hasn’t gotten a look since his first tweet, so his chances aren’t all that great. But kickers come and go in the NFL as the sun rises and sets, so as long as he’s still working on his craft — the video proves he is — it’s not impossible.
