Samuel Sloman: Cut by Steelers
Sloman was let go by the Steelers on Tuesday, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Sloman was the only other kicker on the roster besides longtime veteran Chris Boswell. He'll now look to join on with another team ahead of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Steelers' : Drills chip shot in preseason win
Sloman converted on a 22-yard field goal attempt and made both of his extra-point tries in Thursday's 24-16 preseason win over the Eagles.
Chris Boswell made his lone extra-point try in the first half, and Sloman saw plenty of work in the second half. In last week's Hall of Fame Game against the Cowboys, the 23-year-old also made a 48-yard attempt while missing a 49-yarder wide right. Boswell and Sloman should continue to compete for kicking duties ahead of the regular season, but Sloman has seen the majority of the work in the team's first two preseason games.... See More ...

Steelers' Samuel Sloman: Inks deal with Steelers
Sloman agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Pittsburgh on Thursday, Teresa Varley of the team's official site reports.
Sloman spent time between the Rams and the Titans during his rookie campaign in 2020, connecting on eight of 11 field-goal tries and 18 of 21 extra-point attempts. The Miami (OH) product will look to battle veteran incumbent Chris Boswell, who despite his strong kicking last season, missed three games due to injury. The move sets up a training camp battle between Sloman and Boswell, as both compete to earn the kicking job in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
Samuel Sloman: Cut from practice squad
The Titans cut Sloman from the practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Sloman was perfect for the Titans in the Week 17 win over the Texans, connecting on both field-goal attempts and all five extra-point tries. However, Stephen Gostkowski returned from the reserve/COVID-19 list for the postseason, bumping Sloman back to the practice squad. Before his stint in Tennessee, the rookie seventh-round pick out of Miami (Ohio) spent seven games with the Rams and connected on eight of 11 field-goal tries and 18 of 21 extra-point attempts. Sloman likely will latch on with another team before offseason programs start up.... See More ... See Less
Samuel Sloman: Directed to practice squad
Sloman reverted to the Titans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Stephen Gostkowski was in COVID-19 protocol, affording Sloman his first start with the Titans. With a division title hanging in the balance, Sloman was perfect, connecting on seven total kicks, including a 37-yard, game-winning field goal. The impressive performance should give the rookie solid job prospects moving forward, but Gostkowski likely has a grasp on the starting gig in the postseason.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Samuel Sloman: Kicks Titans to division title
Sloman made both of his field-goal attempts and all five of his extra-point attempts in Week 17 against the Texans.
Sloman made a 47-yard field goal to open the scoring. He also closed the game with a game-winning kick off the upright and in from 37 yards away to help the Titans clinch the AFC South. Sloman was filling in for Stephen Gostkowski (COVID-19), who should be back in time for the team's opening-round playoff matchup against the Ravens. Even in what is likely to be a short stint as the Titans' starting kicker, Sloman made a notable impact. Sloman will likely be returned to the team's practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Titans' Samuel Sloman: Elevated for season finale
The Titans elevated Sloman from the practice squad Saturday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
With Stephen Gostkowski on the COVID-19 list, Sloman will be the Titans' starting kicker in Week 17. A seventh-round pick in April's draft, Sloman previously played in seven games for the Rams, connecting on eight of 11 field-goal attempts and 18 of 21 extra-point tries.... See More ... See Less
Samuel Sloman: Likely to kick for Titans in Week 17
Titans head coach Mike Vrabel hinted Friday that Sloman will serve as the team's kicker Week 17 against the Texans, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.
Stephen Gostkowski was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week and hasn't officially been ruled out for the regular-season finale, but Vrabel's comments at Friday's practice hint that the Titans aren't expecting the veteran kicker to be available. As a result, Sloman, who is on the team's practice squad, looks on track to be elevated to the 53-man roster prior to Saturday's deadline for Week 17 roster moves. Sloman previously appeared in seven games with the Rams this season, converting eight of 11 field-goal attempts and 18 of 21 extra-point tries.... See More ... See Less
Samuel Sloman: Heads to Music City
The Titans signed Sloman to the practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The rookie seventh-rounder was cut by the Rams on Oct. 27 after missing three kicks in a three-game stretch. Sloman will join Giorgio Tavecchio as the Titans' practice squad kickers. Meanwhile, Stephen Gostkowski has been a bit inconsistent this year, making just 65 percent of his field goals, so Sloman and Tavecchio will battle to be the No. 2 option with the playoffs in sight....

Samuel Sloman: Cut by Rams
The Rams waived Sloman on Tuesday.
Sloman has struggled this season, and the Rams brought in Kai Forbath last week to compete with the rookie kicker. They opted to give Sloman one more chance Monday against the Bears, but he made just one of two field-goal attempts, leading to the team cutting him loose Tuesday. Forbath will take over as the team's starting kicker moving forward, while Sloman could seek out a practice squad role.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Samuel Sloman: Another kick blocked in win
Sloman connected on one of his two field-goal attempts and all three extra-point kicks during Monday's 24-10 win over the Bears. He had a 48-yard field-goal attempt blocked in the fourth quarter.
The rookie's low-kick trajectory has been a consistent issue, and he's only connected on eight of 11 field-goal attempts while also missing three extra-point kicks through seven games. The Rams signed veteran kicker Kai Forbath on Tuesday, and it's likely he'll replace the struggling Sloman. Forbath hadn't passed the required COVID-19 protocols in time to play Monday....

Rams' Samuel Sloman: Set to start Monday
Sloman will start Monday against the Bears, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
There was some thought Kai Forbath, who signed with the Rams earlier in the week, would be in line to start, but the kicker hasn't passed COVID-19 protocols, thus setting the stage for another game with Sloman as the main option. After missing his third extra point of the season last week, the writing appears to be on the wall for Sloman's tenure as the starter, but he'll get at least one more opportunity to showcase his skills in Monday's prime-time matchup....

Rams' Samuel Sloman: Competition arrives in L.A.
The Rams signed Kai Forbath to the active roster Tuesday, indicating that Sloman will have to compete to retain his starting job, Stu Jackson of the team's official site reports.
Sloman missed his third extra point of the season in this past Sunday's loss to the 49ers, and he's connected on seven of nine field goals (87 percent). The Rams opted to bring in competition as a result, as Forbath is a dependable veteran who connected on all 10 of his field-goal tries with the Cowboys in 2019, including eight attempts from beyond 40 yards. This competition leans in Forbath's favor, although it appears coach Sean McVay will afford the two kickers three days of practice to battle it out.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Samuel Sloman: Connects from 28 yards
Sloman hit a 28-yard field goal and converted three of his four extra-point attempts during Sunday's 30-10 win over Washington.
Another week, another missed kick for Sloman. This was his second missed extra point, and he's now 6-for-8 in field-goal attempts for the campaign. The rookie also hasn't been given a lot of opportunities, so he remains a risky fantasy option in most settings.... See More ... See Less
