Falcons announce return of K Matt Bryant with funny video
The Atlanta Falcons are bringing back veteran kicker Matt Bryant, and they announced the deal in rather amusing fashion.
The Falcons opted to bring back the 44-year old for his tenth year with the franchise after watching both Giorgio Tavecchio and Blair Walsh struggle during preseason. They made the announcement by playing up Bryant’s nickname, “Money,” with an excellent Shane McMahon reference.

Bryant dealt with some minor injuries in 2019, but he still made 20 of 21 field goal attempts, with the only missing coming from beyond 50 yards. He did, however, miss a pair of extra points.
Bryant has traditionally been very reliable, even from beyond 50. The Falcons clearly feel that he’s still a better bet than their two less-accomplished and less-experienced camp options.
