Draft Scout Greg Zuerlein News
11/14/16 - PG Greg Zuerlein booted his third field goal -- a tie-breaking 34-yarder with 6:52 remaining -- as Los Angeles edged the New York Jets 9-6 at MetLife Stadium.
"We knew special teams had to have a huge day and they did," Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said. "Did a fabulous job flipping the field a couple times."
The win, which snapped a four-game losing streak for the Rams (4-5), marked the second victory this season in which Zuerlein's right leg accounted for all of Los Angeles' points. He also kicked three field goals in a 9-3 triumph over the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 18.
10/10/16 - PK Greg Zuerlein, who was 4-for-4 on field-goal attempts, nailed a 54-yarder to knot the score at 16-16 with 8:05 remaining in the third quarter.
09/04/16 - K Greg Zuerlein, who had a poor season in 2015, made the Rams' season-opening roster.
04/16/16 - K Greg Zuerlein, who became an unrestricted free agent with the Rams March 9, agreed to terms with the Rams Friday (April 15).
01/05/16 - K Greg Zuerlein is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent in March, but the long-range strength of his game was missing this season.
Zuerlein made just five of eight attempts from 40-to-49 yards and three of nine from 50 yards or more. In Sunday's loss to the 49ers, he missed from 52 yards and had a game-winning 48-yard attempt blocked in overtime. That was the third blocked attempt this season. The others were from 40 and 50 yards.
Two of his 50-plus misses were from 63 yards and he did hit a 61-yard kick, but his other misses were from 48 and 53 yards.
On the kick that was blocked Sunday, Zuerlein said, "I thought I hit that pretty well. Obviously, if I was too slow in my operation, or what happened on the block, we'll see on film tomorrow."
Zuerlein also said he thought he hit the 52-yard miss that went wide right "pretty well." That came in the fourth quarter with the Rams leading 16-13. He added, "The first one that I missed, I thought I hit it really well. It was going straight pretty much the whole way and then at the end it just kind of fell off. I haven't really ever had a kick like that, where I thought, 'OK, that's in.' And then it didn't go in."
Monday, head coach Jeff Fisher said there will be another kicker in camp next summer, assuming Zuerlein is re-signed.
"Greg has been asked to do a lot of things, kick a lot of long field goals," Fisher said. "Obviously, his numbers aren't what we hoped they would be. We have confidence in him, but in all likelihood there will probably be some competition with him in camp next year, which will make him better."
