Cleveland Browns: 3 Free agent kickers to consider amid struggles
1. Matt Bryant
If it’s a stable veteran you want, Matt Bryant is your man. Despite being 44-years of age, Bryant reportedly still wants to play football and had a really effective season in 2018 for the Atlanta Falcons.
Bryant suffered a hamstring injury which limited him to just 21 field-goal attempts, however, he had just one miss the entire season.
That wasn’t shocking considering the consistency Money Matt has shown over the past 10 seasons for the Falcons. During that span, he was good on 250-of-282 kicks (88.7 percent).
It hasn’t always been easy for Bryant though. The former Baylor kicker started out his football career in the AFL with the Iowa Barnstormers way back in the year 2000 — although he never made it to the regular season with them.
Two years later, he got a shot with the New York Giants and even had a stint in the former NFL Europe league. Eventually, he became a regular with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but his best stretch was easily during his years with the Dirty Birds.
The one problem with Bryant is his age. Signing him could solve the problem this season but he won’t be around for long. This is only an option if the team plans on punting their kicking problem down the road and dealing with it again in 2020.
