  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: Rookie misses again

    Ryland made one of his two field-goal attempts in Sunday's 38-3 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

    Ryland made his first attempt from 29 yards out to tie the game in the first quarter. However, he didn't take the field again until late in the fourth quarter to attempt a 52-yard field goal, which he missed wide right. The rookie fourth-round selection is now 4-for-7 on FGAs this season while missing two of three attempts of 50-plus yards. Next up for Ryland are the Saints in Week 5.

  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: Makes two of four FG tries Sunday

    Ryland made two of his four field-goal attempts in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets.

    Ryland, who notched seven points in the contest, made field goals from 48 and 51 yards Sunday, with his misses coming from 48 and 57 yards. Per Zack Cox of NESN, windy and rainy conditions didn't help the rookie kicker's cause, with coach Bill Belichick giving Ryland a vote of confidence following the contest. "We need to have a cleaner operation," Belichick said of the team's Week 3 kicking game. "But I thought (Ryland) showed mental toughness coming back and making that kick in the third quarter after the one at the half that just wasn't a great operation. He did a good job for us."

  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: Five points in Week 2

    Ryland made his only field-goal attempt (from 49 yards) in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Dolphins.

    Ryland also made both of his extra-point tries Sunday and now has a total of seven points through his first two games as a pro. As the season progresses there will be weeks where the 2023 fourth-rounder has more scoring opportunities, but for now Ryland is a speculative fantasy option.

  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: Two points in opener

    Ryland made both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's season-opening 25-20 loss to the Eagles.

    With Nick Folk having been traded to the Titans at the end of August, Ryland is entrenched as the Patriots' kicker this season and will thus have plenty of weeks where he'll be called upon more. The 2023 fourth-rounder's next chance to log a field-goal attempt will arrive this coming weekend when the Patriots host the Dolphins.

  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: Lands New England's kicking job

    With Nick Folk having been traded to the Titans on Tuesday, Ryland is slated to open the season as the Patriots' kicker, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.

    The Patriots took Ryland in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, so it would have been surprising if he didn't land the job. While Folk was a steady and consistent veteran option during his stint with the franchise, Ryland has a bigger kicking leg, which should prove to be an asset both on long-range attempts and on kickoffs.

  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: Competing with Nick Folk

    Ryland connected on an extra-point try in Friday's 23-7 preseason loss to the Titans.

    As Tuesday's roster cut-downs approach, Ryland and veteran Nick Folk are still in the Patriots' kicker mix and remain in what coach Bill Belichick noted Friday was a "pretty tight competition," Mark Daniels of reports. Given that the Patriots selected Ryland in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, it would be surprising to see him let go, but with both kickers having had "really good camps," per Belichick, the team has a tough decision to make at the position, with Daniels suggesting that both players making the initial cut is a possible outcome.

  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: Inks contract with New England

    Ryland has agreed to terms with the Patriots, Mike Reiss of reports.

    The report notes that Ryland's deal is on track to be a four-year $4.626 million pact. Though the Patriots still currently roster veteran Nick Folk, given the team traded up eight spots in order to select the Maryland product in the fourth round (112th overall) of the 2023 NFL Draft, it's expected that New England will move forward this season with Ryland as the franchise's next kicker.

  • Patriots' Chad Ryland: New kicker in New England

    The Patriots selected Ryland in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 112nd overall.

    The Patriots traded up with the Jets to make Ryland the second kicker selected in the 2023 NFL Draft. It's a curious decision given Nick Folk still remains on New England's roster, but with one year remaining on the two-year extension he signed back in March of 2022, it seems clear the Patriots are planning ahead when it comes to their specialists. Ryland transferred to Maryland in his final collegiate season and converted 19 of his 23 field-goal attempts, but he made just three of his six tries from 50-plus yards out.
