Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


  1. Wil Lutz (RFA), K, Saints. Age: 25.
    Re-signed with Saints (5 years)

    Wil Lutz is one of the top kickers in the NFL right now. He was 28-of-30 this past season, and he’s 6-of-8 from 50-plus over the past two years.

  2. Robbie Gould, K, 49ers. Age: 36.
    Franchised by 49ers

    Robbie Gould was one of the top kickers in the NFL last year, drilling 33-of-34 attempts, including 11-of-12 40-plus. He’s 6-of-6 from beyond 50 the past two seasons.

  3. Josh Lambo, K, Jaguars. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Jaguars

    One of the top kickers in the NFL, Josh Lambo has been terrific recently, drilling 38-of-41 attempts in the past two seasons. He’s 6-of-7 from beyond 50 in that span.

  4. Stephen Gostkowski, K, Patriots. Age: 35.
    Re-signed with Patriots (2 years)

    Stephen Gostkowski had a poor year by his standards, but he’s still a very good kicker. He hit 27-of-32 attempts in 2018, though he was just 2-of-5 from 50-plus.

  5. Matt Bryant, K, Falcons. Age: 44.
    Despite his age, Matt Bryant is still a fantastic kicker in the NFL, and he’ll be missed in Atlanta. Bryant was 20-of-21 last year, hitting 4-of-5 tries from beyond 50.

  6. Adam Vinatieri, K, Colts. Age: 46.
    Re-signed with Colts

    Adam Vinatieri continues to amaze. The future Hall of Famer was 23-of-27 as a 45-year-old in 2018, which includes hitting 4-of-6 from 50-plus.

  7. Ka’imi Fairbairn (RFA), K, Texans. Age: 25.
    Tendered by Texans (2nd round)

    Ka’imi Fairbairn has been a solid kicker over the past couple of years. He hit 37-of-42 tries in 2018, including 4-of-6 from 50-plus. However, he has missed five extra points in the past couple of years.

  8. Kai Forbath, K, Jaguars. Age: 31.
    Signed with Patriots

    Kai Forbath hit four out of his five field goals this year with Jacksonville. He was 32-of-38 in 2017, including 6-of-9 from 50-plus.

  9. Phil Dawson, K, Cardinals. Age: 44.
    Announced retirement

    Phil Dawson was just 5-of-8 in 2018 before suffering a hip injury. He was 32-of-40 the before, however, so he could rebound. Then again, he’s 44, so perhaps he’ll retire.

  10. Dan Bailey, K, Vikings. Age: 31.
    Re-signed with Vikings (1 year, $1 million)

    Dan Bailey used to be one of the top kickers in the NFL, but he has since suffered some sort of psychological breakdown. He’s only a 75-percent kicker at this time.

  11. Sebastian Janikowski, K, Seahawks. Age: 41.
    Sebastian Janikowski is finally beginning to show his age. He was 22-of-27 last year, which isn’t bad. However, he missed a career-high three extra points.

  12. Matt McCrane, K, Steelers. Age: 24.
    Matt McCrane struggled with the Raiders last year, but went on to hit every field goal attempt when he was with the Steelers at the end of the season. McCrane didn’t whiff on any extra points for either team. He was 5-of-8 from 50-plus at Kansas State.

  13. Cody Parkey, K, Bears. Age: 27.
    Signed with Titans

    Cody Parkey was very accurate with the Dolphins in 2017, going 21-of-23. He was far worse with the Bears, hitting 23-of-30 attempts. That does not include the doinked kick off the upright in the playoff loss to Philadelphia. There’s a chance Parkey signs elsewhere, but the nail in the coffin of his career could’ve been his willingness to appear on live TV and allow sketchy news people to treat him like a helpless victim.

  14. Nick Folk, K, Patriots. Age: 35.
  15. Cairo Santos, K, Titans. Age: 27.
  16. Blair Walsh, K, Seahawks. Age: 29. — Signed with Falcons
  17. Giorgio Tavecchio, K, Falcons. Age: 29.
  18. Nick Novak, K, Chargers. Age: 38.
  19. Connor Barth, K, Bears. Age: 33.
  20. Nick Rose, K, Texans. Age: 25.
  21. Mike Nugent, K, Raiders. Age: 37. — Signed with Patriots
  22. Elliott Fry, K, Bears. Age: 24.


  1. Ryan Allen, P, Patriots. Age: 29.
    Ryan Allen has been ranked in the middle of the pack in net yardage the past couple of years.

  2. Bradley Pinion, P, 49ers. Age: 25.
    Signed with Buccaneers (4 years)

    Bradley Pinion was 10th in net punting average in 2017, but fell to 24th last year.

  3. Pat O’Donnell, P, Bears. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Bears

    Pat O’Donnell was 28th in net punting in 2016, but improved to 24th (2017) and 17th (2018). It’s nice that he’s trending upward.

  4. Britton Colquitt, P, Browns. Age: 34.
  5. Bryan Anger, P, Buccaneers. Age: 30. — Signed with Texans
  6. Jordan Berry, P, Steelers. Age: 28. — Re-signed with Steelers (2 years)
  7. Donnie Jones, P, Chargers. Age: 39.
