Stephen Gostkowski is already one of the most accomplished kickers in NFL history. After going the entire offseason without a team, Gostkowski landed with the Tennessee Titans according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

In a corresponding move, the Titans have released kicker Greg Joseph who they signed late last season.
Signing in Tennessee is a great situation for Gostkowski, because he lives there during the offseason. He also went to school at The University of Memphis. He also joins a staff composed of multiple former Patriots coaches and players with the Titans.
In four games last season Gostkowski was seven for eight on field goal attempts. But he only made 11 out of 15 extra points. He missed the rest of the season after that because of a hip injury. During the offseason the Patriots released Gostkowski.
During his 14 years in New England, Gostkowski was a part of three Super Bowl winning teams. Gostkowski also was a four time Pro Bowler, two time First Team All-Pro, and a Second Team All-Pro in 2014. This offseason he was voted onto the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team. He also holds the NFL record for most consecutive extra points made with 523.
