Elliot, Jake

Card: Sage 2017
Acquired: 2018, Box Breaker

Jake Elliot is sort of a Philadelphia Eagles legend- just after one season.  He finished his college career at Memphis 202/202 on extra points, and 81 of 104 on field goals, while dominating the school’s total points and field goals record books. Drafted by the Bengals in the 5th round, Elliot competed with Randy Bullock for the kicker job in camp, but ultimately lost out.

After a short stint on the franchise’s practice squad, Jake was signed by the Eagles who needed a kicker in a pinch for the regular season. Along the way, he’d help the Eagles along on their magical Super Bowl journey in 2017 with a 61 yard field goal to beat the Giants- which is the longest field goal in NFL history for a rookie. Jake also set numerous team records as well finishing 26 of 31 on field goals and 39 of 42 on extra points. 

In 2018 Jake finished going 26 of 31 on field goals and 33 of 35 on extra points. He notably improved on his field goal conversion percentage inside the 35, and finished with 111 points on the year.
