The Los Angeles Chargers vowed to leave no stone unturned in their quest to upgrade the kicking game in 2018.
They did just that on Friday, signing Caleb Sturgis to a two-year contract.
The 28-year old Sturgis has appeared in 62 career games over five seasons with the Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles, converting 111-of-137 attempts (81.0-percent) with a career-long of 55. He's made a field goal of at least 50 yards in every season.
Sturgis entered the NFL as Miami's fifth-round selection (166th overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft. He made 26-of-34 attempts as a rookie (76.5), and followed that up by converting 29-of-37 (78.4) the following year.
The kicker joined the Eagles in 2015, and his career took off as he made over 80-percent of his attempts each season. Sturgis converted 18-of-22 (81.8) that year and then 35-of-41 (85.4) in 2016. Unfortunately, he was limited to only one game last year as he was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a hip injury following the season opener against the Washington Redskins. He did make three field goals in that game, including a 50-yarder.
