One of the NFL’s best kickers and one of the Oakland Raiders primary weapons is likely going to be out this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. This puts an already dramatic week for the Raiders a bit more interesting as Jason LaCanfora reports the Raiders are currently looking at free agent kickers.
Janikowski has made good on the Raiders first-round draft choice of him over the years with his ability to kick from beyond 50 yards with surprising accuracy. This year, he’s 5 of 6 beyond 50 yards and hitting 92 percent of his kicks overall. That’s a major loss of a weapon for the Raiders if he’s not available for game day.
