Detroit Lions Re-Sign Kicker; Converted 83% Of Field Goals In 2022

The Detroit Lions have announced that they have re-signed kicker Michael Badgley for the upcoming season.

Badgley's agent, Brian McLaughlin, shared the news on Friday, though the terms of the contract have not been disclosed.
Badgley played in 12 games last season, splitting his time between the Lions and the Chicago Bears. He impressed during his time with the Lions, converting 83% of his field goal attempts, including hitting two of three kicks from 50 yards or longer.

He also had a season-long kick of 53 yards and was successful on all of his extra-point attempts.

Despite having moved around the league in recent years, the 27-year-old is expected to start the season as the Lions' primary kicker.

This re-signing should provide stability to the Lions' kicking game.
