Patriots signing veteran kicker to replace injured Stephen Gostkowski

Howe 14 thoughts on Patriots turning to Mike Nugent at placekicker

The New England Patriots brought a total of seven kickers in for tryouts over the last two days in order to find a replacement for Stephen Gostkowski.

The Patriots also signed kicker Younghoe Koo to their practice squad, according to Schefter.

According to ESPN.com, New England has chose to sign veteran kicker Mike Nugent, who was one of seven players brought in to try out for the team after Stephen Gostkowski was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Nugent, who has appeared in five playoff games, was the most experienced kicker to work out with the Patriots. If that situation doesn't go smoothly, the Patriots can look to Koo.

Green Day pay tribute after death of The Muffs' Kim Shattuck
While battling ALS Kim produced our last album, overseeing every part of the record from tracking to artwork. Kim Shattuck , lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter of the big '90s pop-punk band the Muffs , has died.

Originally drafted by the New York Jets in the second round of the 2005 NFL Draft, Nugent has had stops there, in Tampa, Arizona, Cincinnati, Dallas, Chicago, Oakland, and now New England.

Gostkowski was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a hip injury that will require season-ending surgery, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gostkowski played in four games, and hit 7 of 8 field goals but missed four extra point attempts.

Nugent's signing was announced Thursday. As long as the 35-year-old Gostkowski can bounce back from his injury, he should assume duties as the Patriots' kicker next year. It's going to cost them a trip to the Super Bowl. "But when you have a guy that experienced, you're not anxious about them as much in the big moments because they find a way to figure it out and get it done when it really, really counts".
