Get to know kicker/punter Michael Palardy in this completely honest interview, "Keepin' It 100."

Palardy signed with the Rams on January 5, 2015 after spending time on the Oakland Raiders practice squad. At the University of Tennessee, he was one of seven players in FBS during the 2013 season to handle all three phases of the kicking game, and the only left-footed specialist doing all three. Palardy led the FBS in percentage of punts that have landed inside the 20-yard line with 52.4 (min. 40 punts). On October 19, 2013, he kicked his first career game-winning field goal, as time expried to lift the Vols to a 23-21 upset over No. 11 ranked South Carolina. We caught up with the wide out to learn a little more about him off the field.
