Patriots waive kicker Kai Forbath, claim defensive tackle Albert Huggins

The New England Patriots waived kicker Kai Forbath on Monday, according to sources. Folk was released on Friday to clear a place for Forbath on the active list. The Patriots have had four kickers play throughout the span of 12 games this season and they're going through an unusual time with the kicker position.

Stephen Gostkowski, who has served as the team's starting kicker since he was drafted in 2006, underwent season-ending hip surgery in October. They rank No. 4 out of the six teams now occupying an AFC playoff spot in field goals made from 40 yards or beyond. The 5-foot-11, 197-pounder converted one field goal and one-of-two extra-points attempts at Houston on Sunday.

Huggins, 22 originally entered the National Football League as a rookie free agent with the Houston Texans out of Clemson on May 10, 2019. Philadelphia resigned from the 6-foot-3 and 304-pound defensive lineman at Clemson University just two days ago.

This is all before Ana De Armas is shown wielding a pair of weapons before James Bond takes on an incredible stunt. Directed by Cary Fukunaga ( True Detective , Beasts of No Nation ), No Time to Die hits cinemas in April 2020.

The 35-year-old Folk would knock down seven of his nine attempts in three games with the Patriots (his two misses came in some downright bad weather at Gillette in New England's 13-9 win over the Cowboys), but was ultimately released when an appendectomy knocked him out of commission for this past Sunday's loss in Houston.

Albert Huggins struggled to make a dent in the Eagles defensive line rotation and after being released by Philadelphia, he's been claimed by New England.

Gostkowski, who has won three Super Bowl titles with the Patriots, is expected to be available to return for the 2020 season.
