I like "Greg The Leg," but I’m getting closer to using "Legatron" in a sportscast. Are we sure Zuerlein isn’t a robotic lifeform?

My favorite is "Legatron." It implies that he is the kicking version of Calvin Johnson, for one thing. It also brings an other-worldly description of his leg strength. "Greg The Leg" is okay but seems too simple. "Young GZ," an obvious play off rapper "Young Jeezy," is current and hip but doesn't really say much about his talent as a kicker. So I'm sticking with "Legatron."

There are a lot of great and creative nicknames out there for the rookie kicker from Missouri Western, but I'm going to go with the original, "Greg the Leg."

My favorite answer to this question came from James Laurinaitis. Laurinaitis, when asked about Zuerlein's many nicknames, simply said, "He's 'rook' to me." Perfect.
