Hocker, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the Redskins. However, he was unable to make the team’s final 53-man roster coming out of the preseason last year and was among their final roster cuts.
The Dolphins later signed him to a future/reserve deal in early January before cutting him back May. Hocker later caught on with the Saints and managed to win the job this summer, but was cut loose over a month ago.
In six games this season, Hocker has converted 9 of 13 (69.2 percent) of his field goal attempts. He’s also 11 out of 12 in extra point tries.
