The Redskins have signed former Texas kicker Nick Rose after placing Dustin Hopkins on the IR. Rose, best known for making an 80-yard field goal in practice and kicking while doing backflips, hasn’t had much success at the next level.
After making 27 of 38 field goals and 71 of 74 extra points in his final two seasons at Texas, Rose was cut by Atlanta and released by San Francisco during his short time in the NFL.
He’s average at best and will certainly be a downgrade from Hopkins. Hopefully he finds a hot streak during the tough upcoming stretch of Philadelphia, Dallas, Seattle, and Minnesota. #HTTR#Redskins
