Michael Badgley

Badgley, 28, originally signed with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Miami in 2018, but Indianapolis waived him before the season began.

Badgley signed with the Chargers in October of 2018, where he spent the next three seasons as the primary kicker. Los Angeles tendered Badgley a qualifying offer, and Badgley re-signed with the team on a one-year, $1.1 million deal.

From there, he played for the Titans, Colts, and Bears before joining the Lions last October. Detroit re-signed him to a one-year deal for the 2023 season but released him in July and he caught on with the Commanders. 

Washington released Badgley and he had a brief stint with the Titans before being cut yet again and joining the Lions. He was promoted from Detroit’s practice squad in December. 

In 2023, Badgley appeared in four games for the Lions and converted four of his only field goal attempts, to go along with 13 of 15 extra point attempts.
