One of the oldest kickers in the NFL is an Arizona alum, and now the newest member of that select group is also a Wildcat.
Former UA kicker Lucas Havrisik is being signed by the Los Angeles Rams, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. He will take the place of veteran Brett Maher, who was released by the Rams after missing two field goals and an extra point in a 7-point home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Havrisik, 24, had been part of the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad since the start of the season. He was with the Indianapolis Colts during the preseason, making two field goals and 3 of 4 PATs before getting waived, and was also on the Colts’ practice squad part of the 2022 season.
Undrafted out of the UA, Havrisik played for the Wildcats from 2017-21. He made 34 of 53 field goals, including a career-long 57-yarder on two occasions, and 73 of 78 extra points.
Havrisik gives Arizona two kicker alums in the NFL. Nick Folk, 38, is in his 17th season in the league and is a perfect 16 for 16 on field goals—earning AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after his game-winning kick against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2—and is third among active kickers with 369 field goals.
