Mason Crosby joins Rams practice squad
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Mason Crosby could be home in Tennessee enjoying life as a full-time father of five and occasionally admiring his Super Bowl ring.
Instead, the leading scorer in Green Bay Packers history spent Wednesday getting a new horned helmet and working with his new holder and long snapper ahead of his possible return to the NFL this weekend with the Los Angeles Rams.
The Packers were done with Crosby after 16 seasons, but the 39-year-old kicker hopes he isn’t done with the NFL.
“Feels like a good opportunity to continue to chase this dream,” Crosby said Wednesday after signing on to the Rams’ practice squad. “It’s every kid’s dream to play professional. I’ve been fortunate enough to play for a long time, but I don’t take it for granted. I love every opportunity I have.”
The 11th-leading scorer in NFL history could make his Rams debut Sunday at Baltimore. Crosby would be the third kicker to appear in a game for Los Angeles this season if he steps in for incumbent Lucas Havrisik, who has struggled in the past two games.
