Rams sign longtime Packers kicker Mason Crosby to their practice squad

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. — The Los Angeles Rams have signed longtime Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby to their practice squad.

The 39-year-old Crosby joined the Rams on Wednesday. The move likely indicates Crosby will soon be the third kicker to appear in a game for Los Angeles this season, given incumbent Lucas Havrisik’s recent struggles.

Crosby spent 16 seasons with the Packers, becoming the leading scorer in franchise history with 1,918 points. Green Bay declined to re-sign him after last season, and he has been out of the league this season.

Havrisik has missed two field goals and one extra point in the Rams‘ past two games, dropping to 7 for 10 on field-goal attempts since he replaced Brett Maher in late October.

Maher also struggled with the Rams, who are paying the price for parting ways in the offseason with the dependable Matt Gay, the kicker on their Super Bowl championship team. Los Angeles decided to save money by not applying the franchise tag to Gay, who moved on to Indianapolis.
