Rams Sign K Kai Forbath Off Bears’ PS, Place OLB Ogbo Okoronkwo On IR

The Los Angeles Rams announced Tuesday that they’ve signed K Kai Forbath off of the Bears’ practice squad and placed OLB Ogbo Okoronkwo on injured reserve. 

Forbath will provide some competition for rookie kicker Samuel Sloman, who has struggled this year. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list after just three games. 

Forbath, 32, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2011. Forbath had brief stints with the Buccaneers, Redskins, Saints, and Vikings before signing on with the Jaguars in 2018. 

Jacksonville released Forbath last year and had a short stay with the Patriots before joining the Cowboys in December. Dallas elected to re-sign him this offseason back in March but cut him loose coming out of training camp. 

Forbath was on and off of the Panthers’ practice squad this season before recently signing on to the Bears’ taxi squad. 

In 2019, Forbath converted 11 of 11 field-goal attempts for the Patriots and Cowboys to go along with 11 of 12 extra-point tries (91.7 percent).
