Catanzaro has connected on 84.8% of his kicks as a pro (78-92), including 5-11 from 50 yards or more.
The former Clemson product hit 57 of 64 kicks (89%) through his first two seasons in Arizona, but struggled in 2016, converting only 75% of his attempts, going 21-28.
One of Catanzaro’s 21 field goals in 2016 was a career-long 60 yarder.
