Rams work out kickers, including longtime Packer Mason Crosby, after releasing Brett Maher

Crosby has made 81.4% of his career field goal attempts. Since the NFL brought back the extra point attempt in 2015, Crosby has made 95.4% of his PATs. In 2022, he went 25-of-29 on FGs, with a long of 56 and 37-of-39 on PATs.

The Packers selected kicker Anders Carlson in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft over Crosby.

The 39-year-old free agent spent the offseason posting videos of himself kicking pigskin – including one off a boat – to remind clubs he still has the leg. Could he finally land a gig for someone other than the Packers for the first time in his career?

When Maher was ruled out after three bad snaps in Sunday’s home loss to the Steelers, the Rams placed kicker Lucas Havrisik off the Browns’ practice squad, keeping him on the active roster for at least three weeks. LA likes Havrisik’s upside, but considering he’s never played a regular season NFL game and made just 64.2% of his field goal attempts in college, the Rams will look at veteran options as well.
