'Kickalicious' gets tryout with Packers

(8/30/2013) "Kickalicious" still has a shot at the NFL. Norwegian You Tube sensation Havard Rugland, who embraced that nickname, worked out Friday with the Packers, according to NBC Sports. He offered on Twitter that the workout went well.
"Had a great workout with Green Bay this morning," wrote Rugland, who gained notoriety by creating the trick-kick video. "Thankful for the opportunity."
Rugland will have to beat out incumbent Mason Crosby for the job. Crosby nailed all six of his field goal attempts in the preseason, but struggled in 2012 by making just 21 of 33, including 2 of 9 from 50-plus yards.
