YouTube Video Gets Norwegian Kicker Havard Rugland NFL Deal [VIDEO]
Yahoo Sports is reporting that Norwegian kicker Harvard Rugland has signed an NFL contract with the Detroit Lions. Rugland will compete against untested Blake Clingan, who joined the team in March, though the favorite for the job is 38-year-old veteran David Akers.
Several NFL teams apparently saw the potential in Rugland when a video of him kicking footballs went viral on the internet. Ultimately, it was the Detroit Lions who came knocking and they decided to give him a chance for the open position on the team.
This guy obviously has some serious skills, but the question is, can he execute under pressure when the game is on the line?
