Titans K Michael Badgley bounces back in 2nd practice

After an underwhelming first day in Tennessee on Tuesday, Titans kicker Michael Badgley bounced back on Wednesday.

Badgley signed with the Titans yesterday and was immediately thrown into practice — and by all accounts, he struggled with his kicks, missing at least three on the day while also being bailed out by a penalty on another one of his misses before nailing his second attempt.

“No excuses, just got to make the kicks but I’m not really going to sweat it over practice,” Badgley said after Tuesday’s session, per Paul Kuharsky.

Badgley ultimately finished the day by making just 75 percent of his kicks (9-of-12). Naturally, this made the fanbase panic due to all of the struggles the team has had at that particular position over the years.

However, the “Money Badger” bounced back in a big way on Wednesday.

The Miami product was a perfect 10-for-10 during the special teams period, with his longest make being from 51 yards.

Unfortunately, Badgley’s lone miss of the day came during the two-minute drill period, where he was wide right from 53, but he ended up getting another crack at it from 47 and nailed it.

The veteran kicker finished the day by making 91.6 percent of his kicks (11-of-12).

While Badgley’s performance was no doubt encouraging, he’s still going to have to get it done in a game before securing the job. He’ll have a chance to do that on Friday night in the preseason finale against the Patriots.
