If at the end of that year you are not booming 55+ yarders I'd give it up. You will most likely know if you are going to be good enough to even attempt it after a year (or less), so there's no point in devoting seven years of your life to it.
I agree entirely with this. If you really want to play pro football, you're going to have to work a lot harder than just 1 hour a day, even if you just want to be a kicker. You practically have to devote your life to this goal if you really want it. Art is right though, if it's not looking good after a year or so, it might be time to give it up.
And if your dream is just to play pro football, I'd suggest going out for the CFL or NFL Europe (which will still be extrmely tough, but not to the extent of a superior pro league like the NFL). The NFL is just so much harder a league to make it in, and I just can't see them signing some random 32 year old guy who has had no kicking experience ever before.
