Chris Koepplin kicked a 53-yard FG, which was just about the margin of victory in a 66-62 win over Albany.

Story about his signing here . Manchester Wolves website here .

Could someone explain to me why Koepplin did not get a tryout with the NFL?

Good question; his time will come, but it's good that he's working.

He's working, but do they cover his health insurance now? Does anyone know how that works if you get injured?

Injuries are treated like workers comp. There is no health insurance.

Hell, I'm still wondering how David Sanger didn't land in the NFL.
