Best Answer

The last straight on kicker in the NFL was Mark Moseley who retired after the 1986 season. Moseley ended his career in Cleveland with the Browns after playing 13 seasons with the Washington Redskins, 2 with the Houston Oilers, and 1 with the Philadelphia Eagles. The last field goal made in the NFL by a straight on kicker was a 40 yarder on September 13, 1987 by Steve Cox of the Washington Redskins, a punter who would be called on to kick long field goals or when the 1st string kicker was hurt. Cox was called on to kick after Jess Atkinson suffered a dislocated ankle when hit by an opposing player during a point after touchdown attempt.
