Patriots work out kicker Nick Rose

The Patriots signed two kickers last week after placing Stephen Gostkowski on injured reserve. They put Mike Nugent on their 53-player roster and Younghoe Koo on their practice squad.

But Nugent missed the first extra point wide right Sunday, though he made his other three PATs and field goals of 37 and 23 yards.

The Patriots are keeping their options open, working out free agent Nick Rose on Tuesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

Rose, 25, has spent time with six teams since entering the league in 2016. He has kicked in 10 games, eight for Washington and two for the Chargers in 2017.

He most recently played for the San Antonio Commanders of the Alliance of American Football, going 14-for-14 on field-goal attempts this spring.

The Patriots also worked out defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes and defensive back Brian Allen on Tuesday.

  1. I thought it was just nerves but this suggests Nugent’s repaired hip may still be bothering him

    When the bears tried out 8 kickers they were ridiculed.
    ———————————————————————————–
    The Bears were ridiculed because they had a great kicker, they stupidly let him walk and it came back to bite them at the worst possible time.

    When the bears tried out 8 kickers they were ridiculed. Sounds like patriots are on the same path only no ridicule.
    —————
    That’s because the Pats didn’t throw a reasonable kicker under the bus due to a tipped ball – Gostkowski is just on IR and they need to find a stand-in. And doing so minus Bears’ drama.

  4. ….I love how stories about The Greatest Franchise In NFL History usually generate the most interest.

  5. How in the heII are there only 10 kickers on earth that can consistently kick a football through the uprights? How many games are won/lost each week because of a kick? You never know how important a kicker is until you live in MN, Chicago, or Buffalo.
