Falcons Cut Longtime Kicker Matt Bryant

Falcons kicker Matt Bryant, who has been with the team for 10 seasons, announced he would be cut on Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

“I was informed last night that the team was moving on from my services and that I would be released,” Bryant wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “I want to say thank you to all (of) the fans that have stood with me and my family during our time here.”

Bryant, who will turn 44 in May, said he doesn’t plan to retire.

The Falcons can get cheaper at the position by keeping Giorgio Tavecchio, the injury replacement for Bryant last season who had field goals of 50 and 56 yards in the team’s 23-20 victory over the Giants.

The move creates $2.8 million in cap space for the Falcons.
