Bringing back Lambo seemed like one of the easiest decisions for the Jaguars this offseason, as after dealing with issues at kicker after moving on from Josh Scobee, Lambo came in and held down the position and was the most reliable player on the team’s offense the past two seasons.
The former MLS goal keeper joined the Jaguars in 2017 and quickly cemented his place kicking a game winning field goal in overtime against his former team, the San Diego Chargers. Lambo also set a career record with a 57-yard kick and has hit on 92.7 percent of his kicks with the Jaguars.
Bringing back Lambo was important because with the Jaguars headed into 2019 with a new quarterback, possibly a rookie, they’ll need someone who can get them three points when in range.
