FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The Cheap New England Patriots Jerseys released kicker Mike Nugent on Tuesday, and a source told ESPN that they have agreed to terms with veteran Nick Folk to replace him.
The NFL Network first reported that Folk, who last kicked in the Cheap NFL Jerseys with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2017, would be the choice.
Nugent’s release comes after a rain-soaked 27-13 win over the Cheap Cleveland Browns Jerseys on Sunday in which he missed a 34-yard field goal, and a 29-yarder was blocked. It was the first blocked field goal against the Patriots since 2006.
Nugent, 37, had been signed on Oct. 3 after the Patriots placed longtime kicker Stephen Gostkowski on season-ending injured reserve with a hip injury. Nugent appeared in four games, and was 5-of-8 on field goals and 15-of-16 on point-after attempts.
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — Cheap Los Angeles Rams Jerseys coach Sean McVay said Tuesday that receiver Brandin Cooks was en route to see a specialist in Pittsburgh after suffering his second concussion this month.
McVay said Cooks is “feeling good,” but that there is concern about the frequency in which the concussions are occurring, followed by how quickly Cooks feels asymptomatic. “What’s most important is Brandin Cooks the human being right now,” McVay said, “not necessarily the Cheap Football Jerseys player.”
Cooks was placed into concussion protocol following a Week 5 Thursday night loss to the Cheap Seattle Seahawks Jerseys, but was cleared to play in Week 6. He also was put into concussion protocol last Sunday, Week 8, against the Cheap Cincinnati Bengals Jerseyswhen he appeared to be involved in a helmet-to-helmet collision in the first quarter.
When asked how this could affect the rest of Cooks’ season, McVay said: “We just want to take it a day at a time… Any time that you have something like this occur, you want to consider the human being first and foremost and that’s what we’re going to do and we’ll take our time.”
A sixth-year pro, Cooks has suffered three known concussions prior to this season.
Last season, he was placed into protocol in Week 5 against the Seahawks, before he was cleared for Week 6. He also suffered a concussion in the 2018 Super Bowl as a member of the New England Patriots and in 2015 with the Cheap New Orleans Saints Jerseys.
After last season, Cooks, 26, signed a five-year, $81 million extension, with $50.5 million in guarantees, that runs through the 2023 season.
This season, Cooks has caught 27 passes for 402 yards and a touchdown.
The Rams have an open date this week before playing the Cheap Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys at Heinz Field in Week 10.
The Patriots are 8-0, but with the competition level of their schedule rising and the potential for closer games ahead, the instability at kicker is a potential concern for coach Bill Belichick, who has had the luxury of having Adam Vinatieri and Gostkowski as his two kickers over most of his 20-year tenure.
Folk, who also kicked for the Cheap Dallas Cowboys Jerseys (2007-2009) and Cheap New York Jets Jerseys (2010-2016), is 245-of-305 on field-goal attempts in his career. Earlier in 2019, he was the kicker for the Arizona Hotshots of the Alliance of American Football.
Since Gostkowski went on IR, the Patriots have brought in kickers to keep their emergency list updated. The group included veterans Folk, Blair Walsh, Giorgio Tavecchio and Kai Forbath, and younger options Greg Joseph, Austin MacGinnis, Austin Rehkow, Nick Rose, Matthew Wright, Josh Gable and Elliott Fry.
They had kicker Younghoe Koo on the practice squad for a couple of weeks, but later released him, and Koo signed with the Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jerseys on Tuesday after the club released veteran Matt Bryant.
The Patriots also released tight end Eric Tomlinson, who started two games and had one reception for one yard since being signed on Oct. 15.
