The New England Patriots signed free agent kicker Mike Nugent on Thursday. He will replace Stephen Gostkowski, who will miss the rest of the season.

The long-time kicker needs hip surgery that will cost him the rest of the season. As a backup plan, the team also added Younghoe Koo to their practice squad.

Koo is expected to be the team’s backup plan if things do not work out with Nugent.

Nugent last played with the Oakland Raiders during the 2018 season. He made six appearances, including three starts with the franchise.

In his career, he has previously kicked in the AFC East, as he previously played for the New York Jets. He also played for the Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his career, besides the aforementioned Raiders.

The 37-year-old Centerville, Ohio native has experience with 164 NFL games. He is 253 of 311 with an 81.4% field goal percentage. He has also made 363 of 377 for 96.3% in extra point percentage.

The 25-year-old Seoul, South Korea native has not played in the NFL since the 2017 season. He was a kicker for the Los Angeles Chargers, before being released.

He appeared in four games with the team before they terminated his contract. He was 3 of 6 in field goal attempts for a 50% field goal percentage.

However, he was a perfect 9 of 9 in extra points.
