JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jaguars have cut kicker Jason Myers and signed former Chargers kicker Josh Lambo.
Myers missed two field goals in Sunday's loss to the Rams and has missed four field goals this year. In his two-plus seasons, Myers missed 12 extra points and made 81-percent of his field goal attempts. This season, Myers made 11 of 15 field goal attempts.
Lambo, a Texas A&M alum, kicked for the Chargers in 2015 and 2016, also connecting on 81-percent of his field goal attempts. In two years, he missed eight extra points in 78 attempts.
Myers' career with the Jaguars got off to a rocky start when he missed seven extra points in his first season in 2015. His strong leg kept him on the roster, as he made field goals of 58 yards in 2015 and 56 yards in 2016. His best moment came against the Ravens in Baltimore in 2015 when he kicked the Jaguars to a 22-20 victory when he connected on a 53-yard field goal with no time on the clock.
Lambo missed all three attempts from over 50 yards in 2016 for the Chargers, but was very reliable from short range, making 20 of 21 field goals from inside of 40 yards.
Lambo also has a soccer background as a goalkeeper, having trained with English Premier League side Everton F.C. He was drafted in the first round of the 2008 MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas, but never played for Dallas. He was loaned to FC Tampa Bay in 2010 and appeared in 6 games. He made two appearances for the United States U-17 team and 4 appearances with the United States U-20 team.
