Falcons bring in four for kicker tryouts

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons are looking at alternatives for slumping kicker Jason Elam.

The Falcons brought Steve Hauschka, Sam Swant and Shane Andrus and former Georgia standout Brandon Coutu to their practice facility for tryouts on Tuesday.

Hauschka, Swant and Andrus have NFL experience. Coutu was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 2008 but did not make the team.

The 39-year-old Elam has made only 10-of-16 field-goal attempts this season and ranks 30th in the league with his 62.5 percent success rate.

Of most concern, Elam has made only 3-of-7 attempts from 30 to 39 yards, including a missed 35-yarder in Sunday's overtime loss to the New York Giants. He made 29-of-31 attempts overall in 2008.
