For the third time this season, and the sixth time since Greg Zuerlein left, the Los Angeles Rams have a new kicker. The Rams called up veteran Mason Crosby from the practice squad on Saturday, indicating he will make his L.A. debut on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Crosby would be the Rams third kicker of 2023, following Brett Maher and Lucas Havrisik, and that’s just including the regular season; L.A. had two rookies on the roster in the offseason but cut both for poor performances.
Crosby will be playing for a team that is not the Green Bay Packers for the first time in a 16-year career.

Crosby went 25-of-29 with Green Bay last year, with three of his four misses coming from beyond 50 yards. He was also 37-of-39 on extra points. Crosby was perfect on kicks in 2020, but only had 16 attempts, though he led the NFL in extra point makes and attempt on a high-powered Aaron Rodgers offense.
The 39-year-old Crosby has never kicked for anyone other than the Packers, but the team opted to go with the younger Anders Carlson in 2023.
Since the Rams parted with Zuerlein four years ago, he’s kicked for the Cowboys and Jets. He’s currently 24-of-25 on New York’s roster, with his lone miss coming from 52.
