MATT PRATER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Prater hopes to stay with Lions after settling team's kicking woes

Wide left, wide right. Take your pick. That's how the Detroit Lions' season began before Matt Prater came in and settled down an incredibly shaky kicking situation.

Denver Broncos: Was Matt Prater’s suspension too much?

Last season, Matt Prater established himself as the best kicker in the league. He missed only one field goal, would kick them through easily from more than 50 yards away, and even broke a 43 year old record when he kicked in a 64 yard field goal.
