Kicker Sebastian Janikowski will fly to Seattle on Tuesday to meet with the Seahawks, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The former Raiders kicker also visited the Chargers.

The Seahawks began the process of replacing Blair Walsh when they signed Jason Myers in January, but coach Pete Carroll has acknowledged the team would like to add another kicker.

Janikowski spent 18 seasons with the Raiders and is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer. But they decided not to re-sign him, opting to go with Giorgio Tavecchio. Tavecchio replaced Janikowski last season when Janikowski went on injured reserve with a back injury September 9.

Janikowski has made 80.4 percent of his career field-goal attempts.

  1. He made 80 per cent, but attempted more 50+ yard attempt than any other kicker…. He has to be over 95 per cent on less than 40

  2. I’d rather have a guy that’s missing a kick because he’s getting older than one that’s missing a kick because he’s mentally broken.

    Blair Walsh is why the Seahawks weren’t 12 and 4 last year. Even as bad as the offensive line is and all the injuries it came down to bad kicks by a kicker that is mentally broken.

    That being said I cannot believe there are not better options out there. People should start training their young boys to kick footballs at a young age …you can make three million dollars a year just kicking footballs well.

  3. He would be a short term (1-3yr) fix that should be fine and likely for a good price. He kicks into end zone for TBs about 50% of the time and still has enough leg strength to kick 50yd field goals. High 50s not there anymore, but overall accuracy still there. I like this direction and hope it works out.

  4. Sad when u need to make excuses,blame the kicker, Seattle Seahawks suck,sinking to the bottom.but blame the kicker hahahahahaha maybe that one read rb u call a qb should have punched it in,the end zone for a td and NOT leave it to the kicker.
