Lions To Host Ex-49ers PK David Akers
With conversations between the Lions and veteran kicker Jason Hanson at an impasse, the team is prepared to look at other options. According to the Detroit Free Press, the team plans to host former 49ers kicker David Akers for a visit next week.
Akers struggled in 2012, converting 29-42 field goals after having a double hernia operation in the offseason.
In 2011, Akers was outstanding, making a league-high 44 field goals and going 7-9 from 50 yards and beyond. He earned first-team All-Pro honors and was named to the Pro Bowl for the third consecutive season.
