Can Ortiz?

And the 6th pick was Jake Matthews, who may remain with his team for the duration of his career!

What? Logan Paulsen got cut? That's a surprise to me. I thought for sure we would carry 4 tight ends with Stocker serving in the H-back role.

He missed more than a couple of blocks this preseason. I’m guessing stocker and graham offer more at the moment.

I suspect he'll be like Prater. He'll go somewhere else and be good once he gets over the yips. The talent is there, and he was really good for us when Matt was out last year. In games that matter, he's 21 out of 26 with several 50+ yarders.

Wouldn't be surprised if he's back here next year.

Yeah, I can see that as a possibility. I mean even Bryant was inconsistent & bounced around a lot from the time he was Giorgio's age until he arrived in Atlanta.

Right. The Falcons have figured out the system on this one. We had Morten Andersen from 1995-2000 when he was 35-40. Then, we brought him back in 2006 and 2007 when he was 46/47.

Then, we swapped to Elam, who was 38 and 39 at the time. Since 2009, we've had Matt, who started with us when he was 34 and will be 44 this year.

Old, proven kickers are much more reliable. It's that simple.

Better than the 55% this preseason, but still only ~80%
