Patriots Signed Kicker Mike Nugent To Replace Stephen Gostkowski’s Ian Rapoport reports the Patriots have signed K Mike Nugent.
Nugent will replace Stephen Gostkowski who is out for the season with a hip injury. Nugent hasn’t played this season, but went 6-for-6 on field goals and 4-for-5 on extra points with the Raiders in 2018. He should be a solid replacement but keep in mind prior to Gostkowski getting the yips he was one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history. Nugent does have a strong leg but the kicking game may not be quite what we have grown accustomed to over the past two decades with two of the greatest kickers in NFL history.
