Vizcaino signs with Chargers

Chino Hills resident Tristan Vizcaino, a kicker who appeared in one game with the San Francisco 49ers during the 2020 NFL season, signed a contract with the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

Vizcaino, a Damien High School (La Verne) graduate, connected on three field goal attempts and three extra-point tries in the 49ers’ regular-season finale after taking over for injured kicker Robbie Gould.

The University of Washington graduate previously signed contracts with the Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings and the Buffalo Bills after going undrafted in 2018. 

Vizcaino is only one of two kickers on the Chargers roster along with last year’s starter Michael Badgley, who finished 24 of 33 on field goal attempts and 36 of 39 extra-points. All nine of his misses on field goal attempts were 40 yards or more.

Vizcaino signed with the Bengals on Jan. 1, 2019 but was waived on Aug. 30, 2019.

He signed with the Cowboys on Jan. 21, 2020, was waived by the team on April 22 and signed another contract with the Bengals on Aug. 1. 

He was waived on Aug. 26, signed with the Vikings on Nov. 21 but was released on Dec. 15.

Vizcaino was signed to the 49ers’ practice squad on Jan. 1, played in the team’s Jan. 3 game, and his contract expired on Jan. 11.

He signed with the Bills on Jan. 23, but that contract expired on Feb. 1.

The 2021 NFL season will begin in early September.
