Chargers Worked Out Kickers Younghoe Koo, Andrew Franks & Jason Myers

Field Yates is reporting that the Chargers brought in free agent kickers for tryouts on Friday including Younghoe Koo, Andrew Franks, and Jason Myers.

It’s interesting to see the Chargers bring back Koo for a tryout, considering that they cut him a few weeks into the regular season. Koo recently worked out for the Panthers and Cowboys, but did not receive an offer from either team.

Franks, 24, signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Rensselaer back in May of 2015. He was entering the final year of a three-year $1.575 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $615,000 this season when the Dolphins waived him coming out of the preseason after they claimed K Cody Parkey off of waivers from the Browns.

In 2016, Franks appeared in all 16 games for Miami and recorded 16 field goals on 21 attempts (76.2 percent) to go along with 41 converted extra points on 42 attempts (97.6 percent), while kicking 43 touchbacks.

Koo, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern back in May. He was set to make a base salary of $465,000 for the 2017 season when the Chargers waived him a few weeks ago and re-signed K Nick Novak.

In 2017, Koo has appeared in four games for the Chargers and converted just three of six field goal attempts and all nine extra point tries.
