The Lions added a kicker to their roster on Tuesday.

The team announced the signing of free agent John Parker Romo. No terms of the deal were disclosed.

Romo signed with the Lions after a tryout with the team. He spent time with the Saints last year after going undrafted and kicked for the San Antonio Brahmas of the XFL this spring.

Romo made 17 of the 19 field goals he tried for the Brahmas this season. He was 34-of-34 on extra points and 18-of-22 on field goals at Virginia Tech in 2021.

The Lions also have Michael Badgley at kicker. He was 20-of-24 on field goals and 33-of-33 on extra points in 12 games for Detroit last season.

  1. The 49ers were smart to take Moody high…solid kicker for them the next 10 year probably. The lions and Cowboys , and cardinals could have you someone like that.

  2. Excellent signing LOLIons! What if the guy breaks his foot or double doinks a critical game?

    You goofy fans that think every move these GMs make is hysterical.

    I think it is good that they signed an XFL player. It shows the minor league is working. It’s a kicker. Probably not much guaranteed. He signed to the 90 man roster. Every team ought to have 2 kickers, maybe 3 in training camp. They can see what their alternate is. “What if the guy breaks his foot” EXACTLY. You don’t have 7 days to evaluate someone. You already have seen one.

    I’d like to see more XFL players signed, they should have more polish than a lot of those URFA. A lot of these year’s URFA will be next season’s XFL players.
