Who was the 1st soccer-style placekicker in the NFL?

Need the player, the team he played for, and the year he began the soccer-style kicks.

Hungary's Pete Gogolak actually was the first soccer-style kicker in pro football; he joined the AFL's Buffalo Bills in 1964. While Gogolak had some success, going on to play for 11 seasons with the Bills and Giants, it was a young Norwegian ski jumper who really put soccer-style kicking on the map.
