    Lions claim two off waivers, including a new kicker, Austin Seibert

    Allen Park — A day after releasing both of the kickers on the roster, the Detroit Lions have a new answer at the position, claiming Austin Seibert off waivers. 

    A fifth-round draft pick in 2019, Seibert has appeared in 21 games across two seasons for the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals. He’s converted on 31 of his 38 field goal attempts, with a career long of 53. 

    Additionally, Seibert has handled kickoffs during the early stages of his NFL career, netting a touchback on 45.3% of his 95 boots. 

    Seibert attended Oklahoma, where he finished his collegiate career as the Big 12’s all-time leading scorer. For the Sooners, he made 79.7% of his field goals, while also handling punting duties for the team, averaging 41.7 yards per attempt. 

    In addition to Seibert, the Lions also claimed a wide receiver off waivers, adding former Cleveland Brown KhaDarel Hodge. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder went undrafted out of Prairie View A&M in 2018 before signing with the Los Angeles Rams.
