The Los Angeles Rams have taken a significant step to address their kicking issues by holding a workout for free-agent kickers. This move comes after the team officially released Brett Maher following his struggles in the Rams’ 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he missed three kicks.
During this workout, the Rams considered several potential replacements for Maher. Notably, they brought in Mason Crosby, a seasoned NFL veteran who spent his entire 16-year career with the Green Bay Packers. This is the first time in Crosby’s career that he’s exploring the possibility of kicking for a team other than the Packers.

It’s important to note that Mason Crosby has not signed with the Rams at this point; the workout was intended to assess his suitability for the role. However, the mere fact that Crosby, who is well-known for his tenure with the Packers, is contemplating continuing his career with a different team is noteworthy. The Rams are actively exploring their options to address their kicking situation.
