Ed "Pi Double I" Henderson
The Los Angeles Rams have signed kicker Lirim Hajrullahu formerly of the CFL (Canadien Football League), as Greg Zuerlein's replacement. Zeurline, who followed his special team's coach "Bones" Fassell to Dallas, left a massive hole in the Rams kicking game.
Hajrullahu made 85% of his kicks last season with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, as made the CFL All-Star Game last season, which is equivalent to the NFL Pro Bowl.
In 2014, he was named the Most Outstanding Rookie of the Year, West Division Special Teams Player of the Year, held the Rookie field goal Percentage record of 87%, and was the fourth in the CFL's field goal percentage. Hajrullahu in 2014 and 2016 also named as the Most Outstanding Special Teams Player of the Year and Most Outstanding Canadian Player of the Year.
Hajrullahu's longest field goal made is 55-yards, but we have to put in perspective of the inclement weather conditions he kicked against North of the Border. In 2018, he was perfect and tied for the most 50-yard field goals made in the CFL history seven for seven.
Hajrullahu kicked a 32-yard winning field goal to help the Toronto Argonauts win the 2017 Grey Cup. Currently is now the only kicker on the Rams roster and yet to see if they draft a kicker. He also took on the punting duties with a 62-yard average on punts.
