Kai Forbath Expected To Return To Cowboys 


The Cowboys are expected to re-sign kicker Kai Forbath, who was a perfect 10 of 10 on field goals and 10 of 10 on extra points in the team's final three games of last season.

Forbath replaced Brett Maher in December after Maher missed his 10th field goal attempt of the year in a 31-24 loss to the Bears.

The Cowboys also have Tristan Vizcaino on the current roster. Vizcaino has not kicked in a regular-season game, but he has spent offseason time with the Bengals and Jets. He tried out for the Cowboys' kicker job in December before it went to Forbath.

When Forbath goes to training camp with the Cowboys in July, it won't be the first time. He was on the roster back in 2011, although he was injured for all of camp and parts of the regular season. Forbath eventually signed with the Redskins in 2012 and spent three years in Washington before joining the Saints in 2015, followed by two years in Minnesota. Forbath went to Jacksonville in 2018 and played in one game for the Patriots last year before signing with the Cowboys to finish out the regular season. 

For his career, Forbath has made 86.8 percent of his field goals (131 of 151) and he's 93.8 percent successful on extra points (183 of 195). Eight of his 12 career extra-point misses occurred in his two seasons with the Vikings from 2016-17. 

While Forbath was perfect in his 20 total kicks with the Cowboys, he did have two kickoffs out of bounds. It's likely he will be expected to handled the kickoff duties, considering punter Chris Jones has not kicked off in his career. 

The Cowboys are also expected to re-sign long snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a one-year deal, bringing back the veteran for his 16thpro season.
