KALAMAZOO (WKZO) – John Potter will continue his career in the National Football League in Washington as the Redskins announced the signing of former Western Michigan standout kicker on Wednesday.

Potter was selected by the Buffalo Bills in last year’s draft, excelling in kickoffs during the preseason. During the regular season, he booted 13 of 24 kickoffs for touchbacks through Week 6 before being released.

The Grand Haven native reportedly spent Monday and Tuesday trying out for the Redskins’ kickoff specialist spot. Currently, Kai Forbath is on Washington’s roster, but he struggled on kickoffs with 15 of 62 going for touchbacks.

Potter was a source of consistency during his career with Western Michigan. He finished as the record holder in career points for a kicker (333), consecutive PATs made in a season streak (54), and consecutive PATs made in a career (129-current streak).
