  • Chandler Catanzaro: Works out in Minnesota

    The Vikings hosted Catanzaro for a workout Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The Vikings have serious concerns at kicker, as Dan Bailey is in the midst of a cold spell. They also cut kicker Tristan Vizcaino from the practice squad Tuesday. Depending on how he performed in the tryout, Catanzaro has a chance to usurp Bailey as the team's starting kicker. Catanzaro played four games last season, connecting on all five field-goal attempts, including two from beyond 50 yards.

  • Chandler Catanzaro: Earns look Thursday

    The Panthers hosted Catanzaro for a visit Thursday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

    Catanzaro has yet to settle in with a team this season after he was released by the Giants ahead of the 2020 campaign. In his last season in the league in 2018, the 29-year-old converted on 16 of 20 field-goal attempts and 30 of 34 PAT tries across 13 games between stints in Tampa Bay and Carolina. After kicker Joey Slye missed two field-goal attempts in last week's loss to Minnesota, the team could elect to bring back a familiar face to handle kicking duties.

  • Chandler Catanzaro: Let go by Giants

    The Giants have released Catanzaro, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    With that, Graham Gano is now slated to serve as the team's new kicker, while it remains to seen if Catanzaro lands with another organization after sitting out the 2019 season.

  • Giants' Chandler Catanzaro: Competition arrives in camp

    The Giants agreed to terms with Graham Gano on Sunday, signaling a kicking competition between Catanzaro and Gano, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    Catanzaro returned to the NFL and signed with the Giants in July after spending a year in retirement, but his road to the starting job won't be easy. Gano is a prolific kicker who has converted 43 of his last 46 field-goal attempts (93.7 percent). The 29-year-old Catanzaro is skilled as well, but his track record is a bit shakier, making just 79 percent of field goals since 2016. Expect this battle to continue through training camp, especially with no preseason games to test the waters.

  • Giants' Chandler Catanzaro: Back in NFL

    Catanzaro and the Giants agreed to a contract Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Catanzaro will come out of retirement after having hung up his cleats last season when he was released from the Jets' reserve/left squad list. The Giants are set to release their former kicker Aldrick Rosas in the coming days, opening the door for Catanzaro to assume the starting role. In his last season in the league in 2018, the 29-year-old converted on 16 of 20 field-goal attempts and 30 of 34 PAT tries across 13 games between stints in Tampa Bay and Carolina.

  • Chandler Catanzaro: Hangs up cleats

    Catanzaro retired from the NFL on Sunday.

    Catanzaro has been shaky at best after converting 25 of 30 field-goal attempts (83.3 percent) and each of his 29 PAT tries with the Jets in 2017. Last season, the 28-year-old went 11-for-15 on field-goal attempts (73.3 percent) and 23-for-27 on PAT tries over nine games in Tampa Bay before being cut and taking his game to Carolina, where he made all five of his field goal attempts and converted seven of eight PAT tries. Catanzaro's training camp since re-upping with the Jets had been dissapointing, but the team seemed unwilling to bring in competition.

  • Jets' Chandler Catanzaro: Misses pair of PATs

    Catanzaro made his lone field-goal attempt from 34 yards out but converted only one of three PAT attempts in Thursday's preseason opener against the Giants.

    Catanzaro hasn't had any kicking competition in camp, but this shaky performance could make the Jets rethink that decision. He'll need to be better as the preseason unfolds if he wants a job in the NFL when the regular season rolls around.

  • Jets' Chandler Catanzaro: Won't get competition in camp

    The Jets aren't planning on signing a kicker to compete with Catanzaro during training camp despite the kicker's struggles, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    Catanzaro has struggled through the first few days of camp, but head coach Adam Gase is holding firm with respect to his confidence in the veteran kicker. Catanzaro is coming off a tough 2018 where he converted just 80 percent of his field goal attempts, however, so Jets brass could well have a change of mind if he has some misfires in early preseason games.

  • Jets' Chandler Catanzaro: Rejoins Jets after Myers leaves

    Catanzaro is signing a one-year contract with the Jets, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

    The Jets wasted no time finding a replacement for Jason Myers, who signed a multi-year deal with Seattle earlier in the week. Catanzaro converted 25 of 30 field-goal attempts (83.3 percent) and each of his 29 PAT tries during his first stint with the Jets in 2017, but he was cut by the Buccaneers this past November after missing four field goals and four extra points in nine games. The 28-year-old kicker did bounce back in a late-season stint with the Panthers, and he still owns a respectable 83.8 percent field-goal conversion rate for his career. While he'll likely have some competition for the kicking job this summer, Catanzaro may eventually emerge as a useful fantasy option if the Jets offense takes a big step forward after adding Le'Veon Bell and Jamison Crowder.

  • Panthers' Chandler Catanzaro: Almost perfect as Panther

    Catanzaro played the final four games of the 2018 regular season with the Panthers, making all five of his field-goal attempts and seven of his eight extra-point tries en route to 22 points.

    Catanzaro began the season with the division-rival Buccaneers, making 11 of 15 field goals and 23 of 27 extra points in nine games prior to being released. He wasn't out of work long, however, as a knee injury to Graham Gano caused Carolina to call. To his credit, Catanzaro made the most of his opportunity, knocking in a couple of kicks from 50-plus yards in his short stint. Although Gano is not expected to require surgery this offseason, Catanzaro surely did enough to garner interest elsewhere ahead of the 2019 campaign.

  • Panthers' Chandler Catanzaro: Hits field goal, extra point

    Catanzaro connected on a 50-yard field goal and an extra point during Sunday's 24-10 loss to Atlanta.

    Sunday's 50-yarder was just Catanzaro's second field goal of 40 yards or beyond this season. Not only has the veteran kicker been limited to mostly shorter field goals this season, but he hasn't been used much at all as of late. In his last five games, Catanzaro has attempted just six field goals -- connecting on four of them. He and the Panthers face off against the Saints to end the season, a team that held Catanzaro to just a single extra-point attempt in Week 15.

  • Panthers' Chandler Catanzaro: Gets two more weeks

    Catanzaro will kick for the Panthers over the final two games of the regular season, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Graham Gano (knee) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, leaving the kicking job in Catanzaro's hands for the next two weeks. There isn't as much upside for the Carolina kicking game these days with Taylor Heinicke replacing Cam Newton (shoulder) at quarterback, though matchups with shootout-happy offenses in the Falcons and Saints at least offer some potential for the Panthers to put up points.

  • Panthers' Chandler Catanzaro: Has opportunities limited

    Catanzaro did not attempt a field goal but made his lone extra-point try in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints.

    Catanzaro again filled in for Graham Gano (knee), and although he did all that was asked of him, his impact hardly registered on the fantasy radar. His value remains elevated as long as Gano is out, but if quarterback Cam Newton (shoulder) and the offense continue to struggle, Catanzaro's scoring opportunities could remain relatively limited.
