The Jason Myers Experience Is Over
After Missing two field goals in the Jacksonville Jaguars Home loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday the writing was on the wall and on Tuesday morning the Jaguars made it official and released Jason Myers and signed former San Diego Charger kicker Josh Lambo.
The former Arena Football Kicker spent time with the Arizona Rattlers and the San Jose SaberCats Kicker before signing with the Jaguars on March 3, 2015 and then beating out Josh Scobee for the kickers job.
Myers hit 79 of his 64 field goals for 81% but was only at 73% in 2017 going 11 for 15 and missing some important kicks.
The 26-year-old Lambo spent the past two seasons with the Chargers, hitting 52 of 64 field goal attempts and 70 of 78 extra points. Lambo lost his gig to Younghoe Koo (who was later cut) this preseason.
Lambo’s 81.2 field goal conversion rate the past two seasons, is slightly lower than Meyers made in 2015 and 2016 (82.8).
The Jags hope, however, the swap will lead to more consistency from the kicking game in 2017.
