Minzear Posted July 29, 2011 Share Posted July 29, 2011 The Atlanta Falcons are expected to go with rookie Matt Bosher as their punter. They won’t go for inexperience in their place-kicking game. Veteran kicker Matt Bryant has agreed to terms on a deal that will keep him with the team, a league source told ESPN.com Thursday night. Details of the deal were not immediately available. By keeping Bryant, the Falcons should have stability in their place-kicking game as they let punter Michael Koenen walk via free agency. Koenen used to handle kickoff duties and that role likely will fall to Bosher, a sixth-round draft choice. But Bryant handles field goals and extra points and is coming off perhaps the best season of his nine-year career that also has included stints with the Buccaneers, Dolphins, Colts and Giants. Last season, Bryant made 28 of 31 (90.3 percent) field-goal attempts and was perfect on 44 extra points.My link Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
