Jaguars give Myers the boot, sign K Lambo
(TSX / STATS) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars released Jason Myers and signed fellow kicker Josh Lambo, the team announced on Tuesday.
Myers overcame a sluggish training camp and preseason with a strong start to the regular season before encountering trouble once again.
The 26-year-old misfired on a 52-yard field goal attempt in a 23-20 overtime loss to the New York Jets on Oct. 1 and missed a pair of 54-yard attempts in a 27-17 setback to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
Myers made 11 of 15 field goal attempts and 15 of 17 PATs this season. He has missed 15 field-goal attempts and 12 PATs during his 37-game career with the Jaguars.
Lambo made 52 of 64 field goal attempts and 70 of 78 PATs in two seasons with the then-San Diego Chargers. The 26-year-old was cut prior to this season in favor of undrafted rookie Younghoe Koo, who since has been released in favor of Nick Novak.
