After cutting Josh Scobee loose earlier this week, the Saints were seemingly in the market for a kicker with just Forbath on the roster. An invitee at rookie minicamp last week, Barth will be tabbed to challenge Forbath, and the former's success rate in the Superdome (8-for-8 in his career) could very well aid in the competition.
The New Orleans Saints have re-signed Kai Forbath to a one-year deal, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Forbath returns to the fold, but he's slated to face some competition this summer, with veteran kicker Josh Scobee having recently inked a deal with the Saints.
Forbath, who converted a 57-yard kick late in the first half, was one of the few bright spots for a
Kai Forbath made all four of his extra point attempts, but he missed his only field goal try when his 46-yard attempt was partially blocked in the final minute of the New Orleans Saints ' loss to the Titans.
Forbath was the hero in Week 8, as he nailed a game-winning 50-yard kick as time expired against Giants. There was no repeat on Sunday. In three games with New Orleans, Forbath has converted 14-of-15 extra point kicks but has only attempted two field goals, as the Saints' offense has made a habit of scoring touchdowns recently. Still, with the Saints' offense rolling, Forbath should be a solid option going forward, especially with a favorable remaining schedule.
Kai Forbath converted all seven of his extra point attempts and booted the game-winning 50-yard field goal in Sunday's win against the Giants.
Forbath missed an extra point in his first game as a Saint last week, but he was the hero in Sunday's shootout, first converting a clutch extra point to tie the game with 36 seconds to play and then splitting the uprights on a long field goal to win it as time expired in regulation. While Sunday's field goal was his first in two games with the New Orleans Saints , Forbath looks like a decent option at kicker going forward, as the Saints offense appears to be finding its groove and has a favorable remaining schedule.
