Nick Folk may have cost the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a win with his three missed field goals Thursday night, and it sounds like the team is planning to find the kicker’s replacement in the coming days.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Bucs will hold workouts with at least four kickers next week.

Tampa Bay head coach Dirk Koetter said after Thursday’s disaster that the team does not want to make any “rash decisions,” but that does not necessarily mean Folk’s job is safe.

Folk badly missed on field goal attempts from 31, 49 and 56 yards. The shortest of the three came in the fourth quarter, and it could have cut the New England Patriots’ lead to just six points and given the Bucs a chance to come back and win. Most kickers can’t have games like that and keep their job, and we all know how frustrating the kicker position has been for Tampa since last year’s draft.

The San Diego Chargers waived kicker Younghoe Koo — one of the best stories of the offseason — on Thursday and brought back Nick Novak. Koo could be one of the four kickers the Bucs are scheduling a workout with.
