NFL Free Agency: Top Free Agent Kickers

Having a solid kicking option can be the difference from being a decent team to a great team; just look at the level the Cincinnati Bengals were able to get to due to the play of kicker Evan McPherson.

Today, we will highlight a few of the top kicking options in terms of how solid they are expected to be this upcoming season.

Younghoe Koo

The Atlanta Falcons had found a diamond in the rough after getting Koo once the AAF was forced to indefinitely suspend operations. After signing with Atlanta back in 2019, he has been doing incredibly well and was third in the sport this season with a 93.1 field goal percentage and tied for 16th with 111 total points. 

Even if you include his rocky rookie season with the Los Angeles Chargers after not being drafted in 2017, Koo is 90-of-100 in his career with field goals and has only missed a single kick of more than 50 yards.

He has proven to be an effective kicking option with a long career ahead of him and could be a solid kicker for a contending team next season if Atlanta does not get him back.

Randy Bullock

In his one season with the Tennessee Titans, Randy Bullock had a solid season. However, his numbers are not great in terms of the position as he is 20th or worst in field goal percentage (83.9), extra point percentage (93.3), and longest field goal (51 yards).

He was automatic from inside of 40 yards as he was a perfect 17-of-17 from 39 yards or closer. The biggest problem was from between 40-49 yards; Bullock struggled a bit as he was just 8-of-13 on those kicks.

As a career, he is just 13-of-26 from over 50 yards, so he has a smaller range than most kickers in the league, especially currently. He is a veteran who could do well but only played in one postseason game throughout his entire career, which can be a cause for concern.

Matt Gay

He is a restricted free agent, meaning the Los Angeles Rams have the opportunity to match any contract offer that he is willing to sign.

He was a dominant kicker during the regular season as he was second in field goal percentage (94.1), seventh in extra point percentage (98), and third in overall points (144). He played six games in the postseason in just his three years in the NFL and has been 12-of-14 in those games.

Gay also has a Super Bowl trophy to his name, which could get him a few extra bucks in his negotiation. He’s only 27 years old as of this writing and should be getting a bunch of offers as he is one of the better kickers in this free agent class and the National Football League.


There are some impact kickers that are on the free agent market that competitive teams could look to sign to strengthen their team. All in all, expect some solid kickers to change their jersey this upcoming season.
