The Atlanta Falcons and 44-year-old kicker Matt Bryant could be getting back together, according to multiple reports.
Bryant is expected to be in Atlanta for a tryout on Friday.
Bryant made 20 of 21 field goals in 13 games with the Falcons last season, but the team released him in February and opted to go with Giorgio Tavecchio.
Tavecchio, 29, has struggled in the preseason, however. He has missed four of his five field goal attempts from 30-plus yards.
The Falcons also signed former Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh, who hasn’t played in the NFL since 2017. The Vikings cut ties with him in Week 10 of the 2016 season, nearly a year after he missed a crucial 27-yard attempt in a playoff game that resulted in a 10-9 loss to Seattle. He kicked for the Seahawks the following season.
Walsh, 29, missed four of his nine field goal attempts on Tuesday, according to reporters watching practice.
Bryant spent the past 10 seasons with Atlanta after previous stints with the Giants, Colts, Dolphins and Buccaneers. He ranks 11th in NFL history with 388 made field goals.
