Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer said on Monday that Matthew Wright had earned the team’s kicking job and that suggested Josh Lambo‘s time with the team was coming to an end.

The Jaguars officially dropped the axe on Tuesday morning. The team announced that Lambo has been released.

Lambo signed with the Jaguars in October 2017 and kicked in 39 games through the 2019 season. A hip injury limited him to four games last year and early struggles this year led the team to sign Wright off of the practice squad. The two players competed in recent weeks, but Wright put an end to the weekly games with two field goals from beyond 50 yards to tie and beat the Dolphins in London on Sunday.

Lambo missed all three field goals he tried this season and went 5-of-7 on extra points. He is 128-of-147 on field goals and 143-of-159 on extra points over his entire career.

  1. Lambo went to London with the team and was the first player onto the field to congratulate Matt Wright on his GW FG. Lambo has been an A1 Class Act during his time in Jacksonville.

  2. From 2017 to 2020, Lambo was just money. He hit 95% of field goals. Then he got the hip injury, missed most of last season & never got it back. At least not yet. Thanks Josh & good luck!

  3. Josh will be in the unemployment line for less than a day….there is a mad rush to his agent from the Vikings, Patriots and Lions.

  4. I know that being a good guy accounts for absolutely nothing in the NFL, but Lambo is a REALLY good guy and I hate to see him go. I totally understand the move, and everyone knew it was coming, but I sure hate to see it. Best of luck to him.
