News: Suisham was released by the Steelers on Friday.

The Steelers revealed that Suisham suffered a setback in his recovery from knee surgery and will be sidelined a while longer, which prompted them to give him his release and free up a roster spot. With Suisham no longer on the roster, Chris Boswell is the clear favorite to open the season as the Steelers' kicker.

Roberto Aguayo
Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Inks four-year deal with Buccaneers
Roberto Aguayo, K, TB
6/7/2016
News: Aguayo signed a four-year contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Aguayo, the most accurate kicker in NCAA history, inked his rookie deal on Tuesday as he enters the 2016 season atop kicking depth chart in Tampa Bay. The team had enough faith in his ability to spend a second-round pick on the former Florida State standout, so he should make an immediate impact on the Bucs' special teams unit.

Connor Barth
Saints' Connor Barth: Signs with Saints
Connor Barth, K, NO

News: The Saints will sign Barth, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After cutting Josh Scobee loose earlier this week, the Saints were seemingly in the market for a kicker with just Kai Forbath on the roster. An invitee at rookie minicamp last week, Barth will be tabbed to challenge Forbath, and the former's success rate in the Superdome (8-for-8 in his career) could very well aid in the competition.

Patrick Murray
Patrick Murray: Waived by Bucs on Thursday
Patrick Murray, K, CLE
5/19/2016
News: Murray was waived by the Bucs on Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old last kicked for the Bucs in his rookie year of 2014, hitting 20 of 24 field goals, including 5 of 6 from 50 yards or more. Murray was also perfect that season on 31 extra points at the previous distance, but suffered a knee injury last summer and was in the midst of recovering from spring knee surgery. The timing of the move figures to provide the Fordham product with plenty of time to find a training camp opportunity for 2016, and also leaves the Bucs with an opening on their 90-man roster.

News: Scobee was released by the Saints on Tuesday, Katherine Terrell reports.

Scobee signed on with the Saints back in March but will once again be a free agent as it appears the team is confident heading forward with Kai Forbath as the lone kicker on the roster. The veteran Scobee will hope to find his way onto another team in search of some competition at kicker as training camps near.

Nick Folk
Jets' Nick Folk: Resumes kicking

5/10/2016
News: Folk (quadriceps) has resumed kicking, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Folk sustained a Grade 1 quadriceps strain during pregame warmups in Week 9, and his fate for the season was sealed just two days later when he landed on injured reserve. In a seven-game sample prior to the injury, his success rate on field goals (13-for-16, or 81.3 percent) was in line with his career mark of 80.6 percent. Of note, though, was a perfect 19-for-19 from the new extra-point distance, which ensures his stature as the Jets' clear-cut kicker, assuming he regains his previous prowess.

Ka'imi Fairbairn
Texans' Ka'Imi Fairbairn: Signs with Houston
Ka'imi Fairbairn, K, HOU
4/30/2016
News: Fairbairn reached a deal with the Texans, per a source, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fairbairn made all 47 of his extra points and 20 of his 24 field-goal attempts during his seasons year. Nick Novak ended the 2015 season as the team's kicker, but he didn't perform so well that the Texans shouldn't entertain other options.
