ESPN's Field Yates reported Monday that Huggins was claimed off of waivers by the New England Patriots.

Huggins was recently waived by the Philadelphia Eagles after being signed off of the Houston Texans' practice squad. The Patriots scrambled to find a veteran replacement, bringing in Forbath, who worked out with the team during their initial kicker search earlier this year.

Huggins signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent in April. He originally signed with the Texans out of the draft, moved to the practice squad on August 31, then signed to the Eagles' main roster on September 2.

Forbath, 32, was signed by New England on November 29.

Forbath went 1-1 on field goal attempts and 1-of-2 on extra points for the Patriots in their loss to the Houston Texans. He spent his rookie season on injured reserve and has also spent time with the Washington Redskins (2012-15), New Orleans Saints (2015), Minnesota Vikings (2016-17) and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Cowart has been active for five games in his rookie season and played 43 snaps.

Huggins tallied six tackles in two games as a starter in the 2018 Playoff.

Kai Forbath lasted just one game in New England before being cut after missing an extra point.
