Falcons to release 43-year-old kicker Bryant


Veteran kicker Matt Bryant tweeted Wednesday morning that he is being released by the Atlanta Falcons.

Bryant, who turns 44 in May, had two years and $7 million left on his contract. He was due to make $3.5 million next season. Releasing him saves $2,833,332 against the 2019 salary cap.

“I take great pride in my body of work on and off the field,” Bryant said in the tweet.

Bryant, who has dealt with some nagging leg and back injuries, also said he’s looking forward to bringing success and consistency to his next team, with no plans to retire.
