Detroit is bringing back its kicker.

The Lions have agreed to terms on a new deal with Michael Badgley, according to agent Brian McLaughlin.

Badgley joined the Lions’ practice squad in early October, took over the job, and kept it through the rest of the regular season. He hit 20-of-24 field goals and all 33 of his extra points.

Badgley kicked for the Chargers from 2018-2020 before spending time with Indianapolis, Tennessee, and Chicago.

He’s connected on 81.7 percent of his career field goals and 96.9 percent of his extra points.

  1. Good to have the Money Badger back – he provided stability when it was desperately needed

  2. Ugh. Hopefully this is just a minimum deal for insurance and they plan to find a better long term solution.

  3. Lions hit a drought on kickers before Badgley came along. He has limitations but steady from a reasonable distance. Lions were spoiled for a long time with Eddie Murray, Jason Hanson then Matt Prater. I expect Badgley will have camp competition.

  4. Everyone missed the chance to grab camron Dicker last year except the Chargers . Phenomenal kicker
