Posted Apr 16, 2018

Former Texas Kicker Saw First Regular-Season Action Last Year in 10 Games with Redskins & Chargers


The Jets have acquired placekicker Nick Rose on waivers from the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Green & White will be Rose's fifth NFL team. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Texas with Atlanta after the 2016 draft, then was waived in August 2016. The next year he signed with San Francisco and the 49ers made him a final cut that September.

He saw his first regular-season action with Washington for two months last year while Dustin Hopkins was injured and among his kicks in eight games, he drilled a 55-yard try against Minnesota. He was waived in December and acquired by the Chargers for the last two games, which included their 14-7 win over the Jets at MetLife Stadium on Dec. 24.

In 10 games last year, Rose converted 11 of 14 field goal tries and 23 of 26 extra points.
