Colts' Adam Vinatieri: Aims to play at least two more seasons
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7/19/2017) "All indications" have Vinatieri wanting to play at least two more seasons, Kevin Bowen of the Colts' official site reports.

Vinatieri, now 44 years old, hasn't taken his foot off gas pedal during the twilight of his career considering he's converted at least 93-percent of his field goals in two of the past three years and has only missed seven kicks across that entire span. If he plays at least two more seasons, he should pass both Morten Anderson and Gary Anderson for the all-time marks in career points scored and career field goals made.

Chargers' Josh Lambo: Part of open competition for job
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/30/2017) Lambo is in the midst of an open competition for the kicking job, ESPN's Eric Williams reports.

Lambo struggled last season, making just 26 of his 32 field-goal attempts, so it makes sense that the Chargers would bring in competition for the job. While neither Lambo or his competition, Younghoe Koo, an undrafted free agent, have made an impression one way or another, the team figures to settle the battle during training camp.

Broncos' Brandon McManus: Signs contract tender
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/16/2017) McManus has signed his one-year, $2.8 million contract tender with the Broncos, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

McManus, who'd been a restricted free agent this offseason, was hesitant to sign his contract tender in hopes of landing a long-term deal. Considering the Broncos tendered him to a second-round pick, the kicker is clearly a valued member of the team and it only seems to be a matter of time before Denver inks him to a multi-year pact.

Vikings' Marshall Koehn: Challenging for kicker job
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(6/7/2017) Koehn has become a legitimate contender for Minnesota's kicking job in challenging Kai Forbath during OTAs, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Koehn is seen having more leg strength than Forbath during OTAs. Forbath is under contract for next season and made all 15 field-goal attempts last season, so he's still a heavy favorite to win the job. However, it sounds like the competition won't just be for show this summer.

Buccaneers' Nick Folk: Stays hot in Thursday OTA
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2017) Folk drilled all five of his field-goal attempts in Thursday's OTA, Jenna Laine of reports.

The veteran kicker has been lights out over this week's OTAs, as he'd also been perfect on four attempts through the much narrower 8.5-foot wide uprights that the Bucs utilized in Tuesday's session. NFL regulation goalposts were utilized Thursday, which seemed to help fellow kicker Roberto Aguayo as well.

Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Bounces back in Thursday OTA
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/25/2017) Aguayo drilled at least four field goals during Thursday's OTA session, Jenna Laine of reports.

It was a nice bounce-back for the beleaguered second-year kicker, who had gone just 1-for-4 while attempting to kick through 8.5-foot wide uprights on Tuesday. The Bucs were back to regulation goal posts Thursday, which clearly seemed to help Aguayo's cause. The former FSU kicker will attempt to hold off the challenge of veteran Nick Folk this summer, and the latter has notably gotten off to a strong start over the first few sessions.

Buccaneers' Nick Folk: Perfect in first OTA practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/24/2017) Folk went 4-for-4 on field goals from approximately 35-40 yards out in Tuesday's OTA practice, Jenna Laine of reports.

Both Folk and second-year incumbent Roberto Aguayo attempted four kicks apiece at the end of practice into 8.5-foot wide goal posts, which are a full 10 feet narrower than NFL regulation uprights. Notably, Aguayo made only 25 percent of his attempts while Folk was perfect. While it's only one practice in May, Aguayo likely doesn't have much room for error alongside a proven kicker like Folk, who made 87.1 percent of his 31 attempts in 2016 with the Jets and has an extensive NFL track record.

Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Struggles in first OTA session
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/24/2017) Aguayo converted just 1-of-4 field-goal attempts from approximately 35-to-40 yards out during Tuesday's OTAs, Jenna Laine of reports.

It should be noted that both the second-year kicker and offseason acquisition Nick Folk kicked into narrower-than-usual goalposts that measured just 8.5 feet in width, a full 10 feet less than regulation uprights. However, Folk was perfect on all four of his tries, so Aguayo was alone in his struggles on the afternoon. The 2016 second-round pick had plenty of trouble last season with the distance he attempted his kicks from Tuesday, as he went just 4-for-11 on attempts of 40 yards or more.

Giants' Aldrick Rosas: Drawing praise over offseason
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(5/23/2017) Rosas has impressed the Giants brass during the offseason and looks poised to enter training camp as the team's top kicker, Jordan Raanan of reports. "He's got nice size, a nice strong leg and he's been highly accurate since he's been here," special teams coach Tom Quinn said of Rosas last week. "He's very coachable, so he's been very good to work with. We've only had a couple of weeks that we've been able to get him out here with a snap and hold."

When the Giants signed the Southern Oregon product to a reserve/future contract in January, it was expected that he'd be more of a training-camp body than a serious candidate to assume kicking duties in the 2017 season. However, with incumbent kicker Robbie Gould not retained and the Giants opting not to address the position in the draft or free agency, Rosas suddenly looks like a good bet to crack the 53-man roster, despite his lack of prior NFL experience. Unlike Gould and Josh Brown before him, Rosas offers a big leg to the Giants' kicking game, and the consistency with which he's hit field goals so far in offseason workouts has helped assuage some of the concerns the organization had about his accuracy. Given his lack of track record at the professional level, Rosas will still need a strong preseason to solidify his spot with the Giants, but the 22-year-old could carry some intrigue as a final-round flier in fantasy drafts while he supports what could be a potent Giants offense.
