Nathaniel James Kaeding (born March 26, 1982) is an American football placekicker who plays for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Chargers in the 2004 NFL Draft in the 3rd round with a pick acquired from the Phillip Rivers-Eli Manning trade. He played college football at Iowa. He is one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, and briefly held the title during the 2010 season. As of December 5, 2010, his accuracy was 0.2% behind retired-kicker Mike Vanderjagt.

The Iowa City, Iowa native played college football at the University of Iowa, where he won the Lou Groza Award in 2002 and is the all time leading scorer. Even in high school by playing in state championship games in three different sports: (basketball, football and soccer) at Iowa City West High School.

In January 2005, Kaeding became only the second rookie in NFL history to attempt a potential game-winning field goal in the playoffs in the 4th quarter or overtime. His 40-yard field goal attempt missed, and the Chargers lost in the wild card round to the New York Jets, who won the game on a Doug Brien field goal.
