Washington Re-Signs Kai Forbath

THURSDAY, 8:26am: Washington has officially announced Forbath’s new contract for 2015.

WEDNESDAY, 5:31pm: Kicker Kai Forbath has signed a deal that will keep him in Washington for another season. Forbath announced the signing on his Instagram account.

Forbath won’t be handed the starting job in Washington, despite making his field goals at a rate of 88% for his career. J.P. Finlay of CSNWashington.com writes that the team drafted Zach Hocker out of Arkansas last season, and although his accuracy has been suspect, Hocker has shown a huge leg on kickoffs.

As long as Forbath keeps connecting on his field goals, he should be able to hold on to his position. However, Hocker’s powerful leg will put him in position to take over the starting job if he can even come close to matching Forbath from an accuracy standpoint.
