He was considered as one of the better kicking prospects for the 2012 NFL Draft, as he was one of the few kickers selected to participate in the NFL Combine, but he was not selected during the draft. He signed with the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted free agent. The Seattle Seahawks have released the two kickers ahead of him during the 2013 offseason, therefore he is currently the starting kicker.
