Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers kicker Matt Bryant signed with the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday according to ESPN's Adam Shefter. Bryan most recently had kicked in the UFL. Bryant was cut by Tampa Bay at the conclusion of training camp. He was unable to try and defend his kicking job due to a hamstring injury.
The Falcons cut veteran kicker Jason Elam after he struggled this season making 12-of-19 field goals. Bryant played four seasons with Tampa Bay, 2005-2008, and for his career he has made 82.1 percent of his field goal tries.
If Bryant can stay with Atlanta through the rest of the season, Bryant would return to Raymond James Stadium in Week 17 to play against the Buccaneers.
