Josh Lambo appears to be hanging up the cleats this Friday.
The veteran placekicker took to Twitter today to announce his retirement from not just the NFL, but pro sports in general. Lambo spent four years in the MLS as a goalkeeper before beginning his NFL kicking career in 2015.
“Today, I officially retire from pro sports. 4 years in MLS and 7 in the NFL have led me to things I could only dream of, and now I want to help others accomplish their goals as I become a speaker and author. Thank you to the fans that supported me and the teammates I worked w/,” Lambo tweeted.

After retiring from professional soccer at the age of 21 in 2012, Lambo enrolled at Texas A&M and joined the football team as a placekicker in the fall of that same year.
He earned field goal kicking duties a year later in 2013 and knocked in his first game-winning kick against Ole Miss on October 12, 2013. He converted a 33-yard field goal with four seconds remaining to give the Aggies a 41-38 win.
Lambo got his start in the NFL with the then-San Diego Chargers in 2015. He struggled with accuracy during his first two professional campaigns, converting just 81.3 percent of his field goal attempts in each season. Lambo did improve in that regard, though, as he made 95 percent of his field goal attempts in 2017 and later led the league in field goal make rate in 2019 after converting 33 of 34 kicks (97.1 percent).
We’d like to wish Lambo well in his post-football playing future.
