The record for most kickers employed in an NFL season probably isn’t a stat that is readily available, frankly because nobody has ever cared.
But now that the Patriots are on their fourth, it makes you wonder.
Kai Forbath is the latest placekicker to join New England, slated to take the duties Sunday when the Patriots play the Houston Texans. Nick Folk, who replaced Mike Nugent, who replaced Stephen Gostkowski, underwent an appendectomy Thursday morning. Happy Thanksgiving.
We know four isn’t a record for an entire season, considering the New York Jets had four kickers pass through by the time September had even ended.
