  • Lions Acquire Riley Patterson From Jaguars

    Headshot for Michael Badgley

    Before the Jacksonville Jaguars released kicker Riley Patterson, they agreed to send him to the Detroit Lions on Thursday in exchange for a late-round draft pick. Patterson became expendable in Jacksonville after the Jags signed former Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus. The 23-year-old played in 17 games for the Jaguars in his second year in the NFL in 2022 and made 85.7 percent of his 35 field-goal attempts while missing just one of his 37 extra-point tries. He kicked for the Lions in his rookie season and made 13 of his 14 field-goal attempts in seven games. Patterson is now set to compete for the kicking job this summer with Michael Badgley and John Parker Romo in Detroit.

  • Jaguars Sign Brandon McManus

    The Jacksonville Jaguars signed free-agent kicker Brandon McManus to an undisclosed deal on Thursday, the team announced. In a corresponding move, the Jaguars waived kicker Riley Patterson. After nine seasons in Denver, the Broncos released McManus earlier this week, but he has found a new home quickly. The 31-year-old had one of his worst seasons in 2022, going 28-for-36 (77.8 percent) on his field-goal tries while also going 25-for-27 on extra points in 17 games. However, he did attempt 13 kicks from 50-plus yards out last year and was a perfect 10-for-10 on kicks from 40-49 yards. In Jacksonville, he'll have a chance to become fantasy relevant again in an offense that is on the rise under young quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

  • Brandon McManus Released By Broncos

    Longtime Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus has been released by the organization after posting his worst field goal percentage since 2017 last season. McManus converted on 28 of his 36 field goal attempts (77.8%) and 25 of his 27 extra-point attempts (92.6%) -- which were both the second-worst clips in a season during his nine years with the team. McManus has had a few top-12 fantasy scoring seasons among kickers, so if he lands on a team with a good offense, he may be firmly on the fantasy radar in 2023. He'll likely at least get a tryout with a team before the season begins.
