    A Norwegian could be on the verge of an NFL contract as a kicker after a Youtube clip he made of spectacular trick shots has been watched almost a million times.
    The video caught the attention of professional teams in the United States and won its star, Havard Rugland, a tryout for the NFL's New York Jets this week.

    'It went well,' Rugland told Norwegian TV station NRK. 'They tested me on field goals and kickoffs. Obviously you feel a little more pressure here, but I stayed pretty calm.'

    I really think that he'd benefit from four years in college, perhaps at Ohio State. :tongue2:

    Pretty amazing and it really shouldn't matter how many times he had to try some of those kicks.

    I was just wondering what his chances of making an NFL team would be, you don't usually get "mulligans" on field goal attempts in the NFL.

    Yup but this guy looks like he could kick a bad snap for a field goal from 40 yards:wink:
