The Chargers are in the middle of their first season in Los Angeles and it's safe to say things have not gone as well as planned.
They are currently 0-4 and a big reason could be put on their kicking problems. Younghoo Koo won the job in training camp, but had a game-tying field goal blocked against the Broncos and also missed a potential game winner against the Dolphins.
And as we all know, when a player is not producing, someone else is always ready to take their job. On Thursday, the Chargers waived Koo and signed a familiar face in Nick Novak.

Novak was the Chargers' kicker from 2011-2014 and spent the last two seasons on the texans. He has also spent time with the Redskins, Cardinals, and Chiefs earlier in his career.
Last season, Novak kicked a career-long 53-yard field goal and has been pretty consistent throughout his career. The Chargers should be a lot better in the kicking department the rest of 2017.
