Jaguars trade kicker Riley Patterson, sign kicker Brandon McManus

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars have made some roster moves at the kicking position.

The team traded Riley Patterson, who hit the game-winning field goal during the Jaguars’ 31-30 playoff Wild Card victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.


Originally, the team was going to waive Patterson but eventually traded him to Detroit for a conditional seventh-round draft pick in 2026, the Associated Press reports. Patterson was with the Lions in 2021 and during training camp in 2022.

The Jaguars showed their appreciation for Patterson, tweeting out a photo of him and saying “Thank you, Riley.”

In addition to waiving Patterson, the Jaguars signed K Brandon McManus.

McManus helped the Denver Broncos win Super Bowl 50, converting all three of his field goal attempts in the Broncos’ 24-10 victory against Carolina.
