The Panthers are signing K Lirim Hajrullahu, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. He'll replace Zane Gonzalez, who suffered an injury in warmups ahead of Sunday's loss to the Bills.
Lirim Hajrullahu looks like the early leader in the Cowboys' kicker competition. Undrafted rookie Jonathan Garibay has struggled, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic, making only about 50% of his FG attempts in training camp to date. On Saturday alone, Hajrullahu beat Garibay 8-of-11 to 4-of-11. Jerry Jones pointed out that they've been challenging the kickers by making them kick into the wind and said he'd like to see how they fare in the stadium. We'll see how the rest of the competition plays out, but Garibay doesn't look worthwhile as an early pick in leagues with kickers.
The Cowboys signed K Lirim Hajrullahu. He'll kick against the Falcons on Sunday if K Greg Zuerlein remains on the COVID list. The Cowboys are sporting the highest implied total of the week, so whoever is kicking for them will be a nice fantasy play.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Rams are signing K Lirim Hajrullahu. The Canadian-born kicker spent the past 6 seasons in the CFL, earning 2 all-star bids. He converted 83.3% of FG attempts over that span, finishing 5 of 6 campaigns above 80%. Hajrullahu's career long of 56 yards came last season. He looks like the favorite to take over for Greg Zuerlein, who signed with Dallas this offseason. Zuerlein fell to 72.7% in FG conversion rate last year after 3 straight seasons of better than 85%.
