Chargers cut Nick Novak as Josh Lambo wins kicking job


The Chargers are saying goodbye to longtime kicker Nick Novak.

Novak was cut today, Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

That means undrafted rookie Josh Lambo has won the kicking competition. Lambo had a good college career at Texas A&M, and the Chargers liked what they saw of him in training camp and the preseason.

The 34-year-old Novak has spent the last four years in San Diego. Last year he went 22-for-26 on field goals with a long of 52, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him catch on somewhere else. But his days in San Diego are done.
