This is a first… The Detroit Lions nabs YouTube sensation kicker “Kickalicious” straight off the internet to join the pros!
Many users think his videos are fake… “Kickalicious” has the opportunity to prove all the naysayers wrong!
Can “Kickalicious” really make the jump from YouTube sensation to NFL pro?
Mashable.com reports, the Detroit Lions signed Rugland Thursday to a deal reportedly worth as much as $1.485 million over three years. Rugland is 6 feet 2 and 240 pounds. He’ll have a chance this fall to compete with 12-year NFL veteran David Akers for the team’s starting job. Rugland’s deal is reportedly not guaranteed, however — meaning he could also be cut at a moment’s notice.
