The New England Patriots finally signed an undrafted free agent.

Their first UDFA was former Michigan kicker Quinn Nordin.

Nordin displayed as strong a leg as anyone in college football, and after a stellar 2017 in which he made 19-of-24 field goals, it looked like Michigan had themselves a rock-solid kicker. However, the next two seasons Nordin split time kicking with Jake Moody and never found the consistency he had in ‘17 again. And this past season, Nordin was just 2-of-5.

New England’s depth at kicker consists of Nick Folk and Roberto Aguayo. Folk is the favorite, but the 36 year old kicker isn’t the long term solution for the Patriots. If Nordin can gain some consistency there’s a chance he can stick around.
