The Los Angeles Rams announced that they have agreed to terms with two kickers in Austin MacGinnis and Lirim Hajrullahu.
MacGinnis played his college ball at Kentuck from 2013-17 and while he has tried out with the Chicago Bears on multiple occasions, he has never been on an NFL roster. The 24-year-old played for the Memphis Express in the AAF and most recently kicked for the XFL’s Dallas Renegades.
He was one of two kickers in the XFL with a perfect success rate, going 10-for-10 on field-goal attempts to lead the league.
Hajrullahu most recently played for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and has played seven overall seasons in the CFL. He is a two-time CFL East Division All-Star and became a Grey Cup champion with the Toronto Argonauts in 2017 after kicking the game-winning field goal in the 105th Grey Cup game.
It’s no secret that the Rams have to replace Greg Zuerlein this offseason after he signed a three-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, and it appears they are bringing in multiple options to try and do that.
It is possible that they bring in another kicker through the draft or free agency, but if not, there is shaping up to be a battle during training camp this year between MacGinnis and Hajrullahu to win the job.
