08:04 AM ET 01.23 | Lions kicker Jason Hanson, at 42, has been around the NFL long enough to know the drill. Hanson just completed his 20th season and tells it like it is when discussing the competition he expects for his job next season. "I think the days of not having competition are over, because I'm old and they're probably always wondering when's the day when he falls to the ground," Hanson said. "Not going to happen. And competition's good. Unless you're 30 of 31 (on field goals), then I don't think you get the freebie. But I feel like I can kick as well as anybody if I'm healthy. And I was, and I will be." ... [Hanson] had the first training camp battle of his career last off-season. He beat out former Spartan Dave Rayner and kept his job.
