JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars announced they have traded kicker Riley Patterson and signed Brandon McManus.
NBC Sports reports the Lions announced that they have agreed to a trade for Patterson. An undisclosed draft pick will be going back to the Jaguars in the deal.
Last season, Patterson scored the game winning kick over the Los Angeles Chargers in a 2022 AFC Wild Card Playoff game at TIAA Bank Field.
His 36-yard field goal, made right as time expired, capped the third-largest postseason comeback in NFL history.
Twitter users weighed in regarding his release.
The team says McManus, a nine-year veteran, has appeared in 144 games since 2014, all with Denver. In his nine seasons, McManus has converted 81.4 percent (223-of-274) of his field goal attempts and his 40 made field goals of 50-plus yards are third most in the NFL over that time span.
His 946 total points are fifth-most in the NFL since 2014.
