Stephen Gostkowski is out of an NFL job, but it's apparently not due to a lack offers.
The former New England Patriots kicker turned down two AFC East teams in free agency, 98.5 The Sports Hub's Scott Zolak reported Friday on "Zolak & Bertrand."

"Two teams went after him, and he told them 'no,' " Zolak said. " ... Waiting for the right situation. Two AFC teams."
Gostkowski appeared in just four games for the Patriots last season due to a hip injury and was released in March, ending his 14-year tenure in New England. He turned 36 in January and made just 84.4 percent of his field goals during his last full season in 2018, so he probably can't afford to be too selective.
The four-time Pro Bowler said back in May he wanted to sign somewhere where he can compete for a starting job, though, and it seems he's still searching for that opportunity.
The Patriots, meanwhile, moved on by taking kicker Justin Rohrwasser in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. New England cycled through three kickers in addition to Gostkowski last season -- Nick Folk, Mike Nugent and Kai Forbath -- so perhaps Rohrwasser can provide some stability at the position.
