Nate Kaeding Retires From The NFL

Nate Kaeding informed Pat Harty of the Iowa City Press-Citizen that he’s retiring from the NFL.

Kaeding suffered a groin injury several days ago while kicking and ultimately decided it was time to call it a career.

“It’s not like I can switch the way I kick, or change this way, or use a different muscle,” Kaeding said. “Especially for me, and the way I kick, that’s the main lever in the kicking motion. It’s impossible to avoid it and I’ve got these chronic issues.

Kaeding recently signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but it was doubtful that he was going to be able to persuade them release Connor Barth after they signed him to a four-year, $13.2 million contract last year.

Kaeding finishes his career with two Pro Bowl appearances and a career field goal percentage of 86 percent.
