The Jaguars, according to Adam Schefter, have parted ways with kicker Jason Myers. Myers had been the team's starting kicker since 2015 and replaced Jaguars legend Josh Scobee. Myers, while connecting on over 81% of his kicks during his time in Jacksonville, built up a fair amount of ill will amongst the fan base. In 2015 he missed seven extra points, and despite making a couple of clutch field goals in his career, has the let the team down in crucial situation more times than fans, and now the coaching staff would like. Myers struggled a bit with field goals in 2016 and saw his FG % drop to under 80. In 2017 Myers has seen his FG % drop even farther, to where it now sits at 73%. The Jaguars coaching staff finally saw enough.
His replacement, Josh Lambo, spent his college days at Texas A&M. He went undrafted in 2015 and was signed by the San Diego Chargers. Lambo was cut by the Chargers after being their starter in 2015 and 2016. His career FG % is nearly identical to Jason Myers, while his PAT % is a bit higher than Myers. Lambo might not be the long term answer for the Jaguars, but for now it would be good just to have a kicker that can make over 90% over his PAT tries, and over 80% of his FG attempts - that's exactly what Lambo has done in his short career. Lambo's career long is 54 yards. He's hit touchbacks on kickoffs far more times in his career than not.
