180-pound kicker (tries to) unleash inner defensive linemanKickers have helmets and spare time at training camp, and that’s been a dangerous combination for Giorgio Tavecchio.At Raiders camp as a backup kicker, to save Sebastian Janikowski some wear and tear, Tavecchio was “insprired by the football spirit” one day.[...] he hit himself in the helmet and approached defensive line coach Jethro Franklin.“My spirit animal is a defensive lineman,” he told Franklin.[...] I was thinking, these poor bastards (nods to defensive players) are running around for the past week and a half with nobody to hit. …The former Cal kicker has taken about 30 to 40 hits so far, a couple in tackling drills that were clean enough that Tavecchio “went to a dark room afterward and contemplated life a little bit,” he said joking.“He told me in his next life he is going to be a defensive lineman,” Franklin said.[...] if not as a defensive lineman, how about making the NFL as a kicker?During the regular season, he’s worked at restaurants, furniture stores, brokerage firms, tech companies and, last year, helping out with kickers at Cal.The Raiders’ preseason opener Saturday at Arizona is a chance for Tavecchio to hit a kick on film and make an impression around the league.Tavecchio mostly talks soccer with Janikowski, but he said the kicker has opened up the last couple years with some kicking advice.Giddy enough to stand in front of guys almost twice his size, square up and take a hit.
