Titans would “absolutely” consider Stephen Gostkowski

Veteran kicker Stephen Gostkowski said in May that he expects to get a chance to make a team in training camp this summer and there may be an opportunity with a team coached by one of his former teammates.

Gostkowski used to play with Titans head coach Mike Vrabel in New England and his name came up when Titans General Manager Jon Robinson spoke with Paul Kuharsky of 104.5 The Zone and PaulKuharsky.com on Tuesday night. Robinson said that the team would consider signing Gostkowski to compete with Greg Joseph for the kicking job this year.

Gostkowski is coming off a hip injury that ended his long run in New England and Robinson said, as with Jadeveon Clowney, that the Titans would want to check him out physically before making any deal.

“We certainly have confidence in Greg Joseph, I thought Greg did a great job for us, came in there at the end of last year and did a great job for us and helped us,” Robinson said. “It’d be his job to lose but we want as competitive a position there as possible. [Gostkowski] is another guy who’d we’d have to come in and check, but yeah, absolutely.”

Gostkowski was 7-of-8 on field goals and 11-of-15 on extra points in four game last year. Joseph was the fourth kicker employed by the Titans last season. He kicked in two regular season games and three playoff contests and didn’t miss a kick during his time with Tennessee.

  1. Hasn’t been the same guy since missing the PAT in the 2015 AFC Championship that arguably cost them another SB.

  2. Been going on for years (his lack of consistency) and subsequent inability to hold himself accountable. His stats are overrated due to the rules and Brady led offense.

    Pretty sad, even in a dome, 40
    and in I found mysef holding my breath.

    He got hurt in 2010, struggled coming back in 2011
    and then was good overall from 2014-2016, minus the 33 yard whposeee vs Denver in the 2015 title game which esseentially lost them the game after NE dominated the last 5 minutes or so vs a gassed Denver D.

    33 yards in thin air with no wind…yikes.

  3. I like the move for competition only. Joseph went like 9/9 for us last year. Granted, only one of those was a FG but it was in a tight game in New England in the playoffs. I would agree with JR that it’s his job to lose.

  4. The dude was automatic up until the 2015 AFCC vs Denver. That missed PAT was the start of many, and that one specifically cost them a ring. Possible 3-peat was ruined lol.

  5. Giants should sign him since their inconsistent kicker is going to jail (or at least getting suspended).
