Daniel Carlson Healthy For Week 14

Sunday, December 10, 12:45 AM

Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson nailed both extra-point attempts and went one for two on his field goal attempts in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Raiders kicker was on the injury report earlier this week with an illness that caused him to miss practice on Thursday, but he logged a full practice on Friday. Carlson was removed from the injury report before their Week 14 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Playing at home will benefit Carlson as he won't have to deal with the weather factor. Carlson will be relied upon in what should be a close game on Sunday.

Joey Slye Signs With Patriots

Thursday, May 2, 4:24 PM

Veteran free-agent kicker Joey Slye signed with the New England Patriots on Thursday, according to NFL.com. The 28-year-old signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars at the start of free agency on March 18 but was released just over a month later after the team drafted former Arkansas kicker Cam Little in the sixth round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Since entering the league in 2018 as an undrafted free agent, Slye has spent time with the New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, and Jaguars. In 75 career games, he has connected on 121 of his 147 field goal attempts and 138 of his 156 extra-point tries. He will likely compete with Chad Ryland for the starting place-kicking duties for New England this offseason.
