NASHVILLE – The Titans have agreed to terms with veteran kicker Stephen Gostkowski.
Gostkowski, formerly with the Patriots, has been named to four Pro Bowls during his career. He's a three-time Super Bowl champion.
In New England, he was teammates with Titans head coach Mike Vrabel.
The team worked out the 36-year-old Gostkowski earlier this week. He recently bought a home in the Nashville area.
On Thursday morning, the Titans waived kicker Greg Joseph, who was signed by the team at the end of last season.
Gostkowski, a fourth-round draft pick (118th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft out of Memphis, was released by the Patriots back in March. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder is the Patriots all-time leading scorer and he's currently 12th in NFL annals with 1,775 career points and 374 field goals. Gostkowski's 87.4 percent field goal accuracy rate is the highest in Patriots history and fifth in NFL history.
In his career, Gostkowski has played in 204 regular-season games and 28 postseason games. Only Tom Brady (41), Adam Vinatieri (32) and Jerry Rice (29) have played in more playoff games. His 205 postseason points are second all-time to the 238 points by Vinatieri.
During the 2019 season, Gostkowski played in just four games due to injury, and connected on 7-of-8 field goals and 11-of-15 extra points before being placed on injured reserve on Oct 2, 2019.
Gostkowski's career regular season stats: 374-for-428 on field goals (87.4%), 653-for-664 on point-after attempts (98%). In the playoffs, Gostkowski is 31-for-36 on field goals and 79-for-83 on PATs, and he's also been valuable on kickoffs, with 523 touchbacks.
The Titans also have undrafted rookie Tucker McCann on the roster.
