Nick Novak K SD Sep 13 '11
Chargers agreed to terms with K Nick Novak.
Novak won out over Jeff Reed, Dave Rayner, and a mystery fourth candidate. He spent last year's training camp in San Diego, so the Bolts are familiar with his leg. Novak is 19-of-30 (63.3 percent) on field goals in four short NFL stints. He'll get plenty of scoring chances in the Chargers' high-scoring offense, but accuracy is his bugaboo.

Free agent K Nick Novak is a "strong candidate" to fill-in for an injured Nate Kaeding in San Diego.
In the league since 2005, Novak failed to unseat Nick Folk for the Jets' kicking duties during training camp. Just 19-of-30 lifetime on field goals, Novak would be a huge downgrade from Kaeding, but likely still worth a look in fantasy leagues thanks to the offense he would be kicking for.
