Green Bay is adding a kicker.

The Packers are signing Ramiz Ahmed, according to agent Paul Sheehy.

With longtime kicker Mason Crosby still on the physically unable to perform list after offseason surgery, the Packers have a need for depth at the position. Gabe Brkic has handled the duties in camp but missed a 32-yard field goal during Green Bay’s first preseason matchup with San Francisco on Friday.

Ahmed was most recently with the Pittsburgh Maulers of the USFL. He hit a 61-yard field goal for the club but finished the season hitting 14-of-22 field goals and 7-of-10 extra points.

Ahmed has also spent time with the Bears.

  1. 14 out of 22 FGs? 7 out of 10 EP? Certainly there is someone out there with a better track record!

  2. sounds like a keeper. maybe he can play safety to and run back punts.gb only likes guys who can play multiple positions, not necessarily well.

  3. And everyone thought wr was the awful position on the packers. Looks like k is giving WR a run for their money

  4. Steelers have a good kicker in camp that has no chance of beating out Boswell! Just wait for cutdowns!

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    You wish.

  6. Riz Ahmed is fine actor. Really good. I didn’t know that he was kicking in the USFL.
    They say that actors all want to be athletes.

  7. With lafluer going for a useless FG against Tom Brady, why not have a useless kicker.
