2015 NFL Draft: Toledo's Jeremiah Detmer signs with Chicago Bears

The former Rockets kicker is not done yet.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Not a single kicker was selected ahead of former Toledo Rockets standout Jeremiah Detmer in the 2015 NFL Draft.

That said, not a single kicker was selected in the 2015 NFL Draft.

That does not mean the end has arrived for the careers of Detmer and others. The Hilliard, Ohio native will have an opportunity to prove himself and earn a roster spot after signing a free agent contract with the Chicago Bears, per Jordan Strack of WTOL.

A career 84.4 percent on field goals, Detmer's experience kicking in nasty Great Lakes-region weather surely appealed to the Bears, who frequently face wind, rain and snow at home at Soldier Field. While the Bears have a steady, tenured starter installed in kicker Robbie Gould, Detmer now has an opportunity to show off his talent at the NFL level.
