The Los Angeles Rams have been one of the NFL’s hottest teams since the start of November, going 6-1 and clinching a playoff spot Sunday with a 26-25 win over the New York Giants.

As Sean McVay’s team prepares for their fifth playoff appearance in his seven seasons as head coach, they’re reportedly planning a reunion with kicker Brett Maher.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero broke the news Monday afternoon.

Maher appeared in seven games for the Rams this season, in which he went 17-for-23 on field goals and missed three in LA’s 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on October 22, after which Maher was released and Lucas Havrisik was signed off the Cleveland Browns practice squad. Havrisik went 15-for-20 on field goals and missed three extra points, two of which came in the Rams’ win over the Giants.

Like most kickers, Maher has been all over the place in the NFL since signing with the New York Jets in 2013 following an illustrious career at Nebraska that saw him capture two Bakken-Anderson Kicker of the Year Awards. Maher has kicked for a combined 12 different NFL and CFL teams in the time since joining the league, and holds the NFL record for most 60-plus yard field goals made with four.

Maher also holds a more dubious NFL record, becoming the only kicker to miss four extra points in one game in the Dallas Cowboys’ 31-14 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card Round this past January.
