Nick Novak signed by Chargers to handle kicking duties

The Los Angeles Chargers have signed kicker Nick Novak and waived Younghoe Koo on Thursday.

What It Means:

Novak, who kicked for the Charges from 2011-14, returns to the winless club as they look to give their team a boost heading into the second quarter of the season. He replaces Koo, who went 3-for-6 on field goals in the first 4 games.

Novak most recently kicked for the Houston Texans, where he went 53-for-62 on field goals in 2015-16. He owns a career field goal percentage of 82.8% on 209 attempts.
