  • Jaguars' Riley Patterson: Joins Jaguars

    Patterson signed a reserve/future contract with the Jaguars on Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Brandon McManus, the Jaguars' kicker in 2023, is slated to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. If McManus ultimately leaves for another opportunity, Patterson would become the team's only player at the position. The 24-year-old converted 16 of 18 field-goal attempts across 15 games this season between the Lions (13) and Browns (two), while also nailing 35 of 37 extra points.

  • Riley Patterson: Moves back to practice squad

    The Browns reverted Patterson to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    After joining Cleveland on Christmas Day, Patterson worked as the team's kicker in the final two weeks of the regular season and in the the wild-card loss to Houston this past Saturday. He attempted and made just one field goal -- a 33-yarder -- during that span and also went 8-for-9 on extra-point attempts. Dustin Hopkins was effective this season for the Browns before injuring his hamstring in Week 16 and will likely retain his role as the team's kicker in the final year of his current contract next season.

  • Browns' Riley Patterson: Will kick in wild-card round

    Patterson was elevated from Cleveland's practice squad Friday and will kick in Saturday's wild-card round game against the Texans.

    Patterson's elevation was expected after the Browns ruled Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) out for the team's playoff opener. While filling in for Hopkins over the last two games of the regular season, Patterson converted his only field-goal attempt from 33 yards and made six of seven PAT attempts. Earlier in the season, he made 15 of 17 field-goal attempts and 35 of 37 PAT attempts for the Lions.

  • Riley Patterson: Goes back to practice squad

    Patterson reverted to the Browns' practice squad Monday.

    For a second game in a row Sunday at Cincinnati, Patterson filled in at placekicker for Dustin Hopkins, making both his point-after tries. Hopkins hasn't practiced since injuring his left hamstring during a Week 16 win at Houston, but he'll have opportunities to do so as the Browns prepare for Saturday's wild-card contest against the Texans on the road. Patterson would handle kicking duties again this weekend if Hopkins isn't able to suit up.

  • Browns' Riley Patterson: Elevated to active roster

    Patterson was elevated to the Browns' active roster Saturday.

    Patterson is set to kick for the Browns in the regular-season finale versus the Bengals, as Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has been ruled out. The 24-year-old Patterson was with the Lions for the first 13 games of the season, where he converted 15 of 17 field goals and 35 of 37 extra points.

  • Riley Patterson: Reverts to practice squad

    Patterson reverted to Cleveland's practice squad Friday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Filling in for an injured Dustin Hopkins Thursday night against the Jets, Patterson made his lone field-goal attempt and four of his five extra-point tries. It's unclear if Hopkins will be ready for the Browns' Week 18 regular-season finale.

  • Browns' Riley Patterson: Fills in for Hopkins

    Patterson converted his lone field-goal attempt and four of five extra-point kicks in Thursday's 37-20 win over the Jets in Week 17.

    The Browns signed Patterson to the practice squad earlier in the week with the intent for him to fill in for Dustin Hopkins (hamstring). Cleveland clinched a spot in the postseason with the win and may not want to rush Hopkins, who not only stabilized a shaky kicking game but also was critical in several wins. Patterson's lone field goal was a 33-yarder that made it a three-score game late in the fourth quarter.

  • Browns' Riley Patterson: Kicking for Cleveland on Thursday

    The Browns elevated Patterson from their practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Jets.

    With Dustin Hopkins ruled out for the contest due to a hamstring issue, Patterson will handle the Browns' kicking duties in Week 17. Prior to catching on with Cleveland, Patterson connected on 15 of his 17 field-goal attempts and 35 of his 37 extra-point tries in 13 games with the Lions.

  • Riley Patterson: Headed to Cleveland

    The Browns signed Patterson to their practice squad Monday.

    Patterson will head to Cleveland to provide an insurance option for Dustin Hopkins, who injured his hamstring during Sunday's win versus the Texans. Patterson converted on 15 of his 17 field-goal attempts in 13 games for the Lions this season and could start against the Jets on Thursday if Hopkins is unable to suit up.

  • Riley Patterson: Cut loose by Lions

    The Lions waived Patterson on Tuesday.

    For each of the Lions' first 13 games of the season, Patterson served as the team's placekicker, connecting on 15 of 17 field-goal attempts and 35 of 37 point-after tries. The prospect of switching to Michael Badgley was there all along after he joined the practice squad following cut-down day back in August, and Detroit finally made the move this past Saturday against the Broncos, keeping him active and making Patterson inactive. With Patterson now off the roster, he'll be subject to waivers before having his pick at other opportunities elsewhere.

  • Lions' Riley Patterson: Loses job as kicker

    Patterson (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's Week 15 contest against the Broncos.

    After Patterson missed his second extra-point attempt in three weeks last Sunday in a loss to the Bears, Detroit signed veteran kicker Michael Badgley to the active roster. The team will turn to Badgley against Denver on Saturday night while Patterson will be inactive. It's unclear if the move is permanent -- aside from the two recent extra-point misses, Patterson has been mostly fine this season, going 15-for-17 on field-goal tries and making his previous 35 extra-point attempts.

  • Lions' Riley Patterson: Misses extra point

    Patterson did not attempt a field goal and missed one of his two extra-point tries in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the Bears.

    Patterson has now scored three points or fewer in three of his last four outings. That leaves the kicker with 80 points through 13 contests this term.

  • Lions' Riley Patterson: Bounces back

    Patterson converted two of two field-goal attempts and all three PATs during Sunday's win over the Saints.

    This is a respectable statistical bounce-back effort after Patterson hit rock bottom in Week 12. Through 12 games, the Memphis product has now seen multiple field-goal attempts six times but none at all in five of the other contests. While the floor is non-existent, Patterson could again be a worthwhile roll of the dice in a road matchup in Week 14 against a Bears defense allowing the sixth-most points per game (24.7) this season.
