Packers claim kicker Ficken

The Green Bay Packers claimed K Sam Ficken off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction Monday.


Ficken, a 6-foot-1, 192-pound, first-year player out of Penn State, was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in 2016 but was released late in August that year. He spent part of the 2017 training camp with the Kansas City Chiefs. Late in the 2017 season, Ficken played in two games for the Los Angeles Rams, connecting on two of three field goals, four of five extra points and recording five touchbacks on eight kickoffs. Last season, he appeared in two games for the Rams and made all 10 extra points, one of three field goals and recorded 11 touchbacks on 13 kickoffs. Ficken will wear No. 7 for the Packers.
