Greg Joseph

An undrafted free agent out of Florida Atlantic in 2018, Greg Joseph is a player that has caught the eye of quite a few teams but hasn’t been able to land a steady gig with any of the NFL squads that brought him in.

Since joining the NFL, Joseph has spent time with the Dolphins, Browns, Panthers, Titans, and Buccaneers before signing with Minnesota in February of this year. Bouncing around the league can be both a good sign and a bad one since he has struggled to latch on but has been impressive enough to get signed by so many teams.

All 20 of Joseph’s career field goal attempts at the NFL level came during his time with Cleveland in 2018 where he connected on 17 of those tries. All his misses came from 40 yards out or deeper, with one of those misses being from beyond 50 yards.

Meanwhile, he made 25 of his 29 extra point tries for Cleveland and all nine of his attempts with the Titans in 2019. Between his shorter field goal tries and extra points, fans could be optimistic about his chances of being a solid kicker if given the opportunity.
