We posted this morning that Matt Bryant was planning on returning for the 2019 season. Since that time, Bryant has updated his situation.
He has posted on social media that the team will not bring him back for the upcoming season. The 43-year-old, who will be 44-years-old in May, was released, as the team goes with the younger Giorgio Tavecchio.
“I was informed last night that the team was moving on from my services and that I would be released,” he posted on Twitter. “I want to say thank you to all the fans that have stood with me and my family during our time here. I take great pride in my body of work on and off the field. I hope I have represented you well while I was here.
“It was [an] honor to be apart of some big moments in this franchise’s history. This chapter is now closed. I look forward to bringing the success and consistency that I’ve produced to my next team.”
As Bryant said, he would like to play in 2019 with a new team. He is the second-oldest kicker in the league, behind Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, who will be 47-years-old in Dec.
Bryant — who will be 44 on May 29th — has spent the last decade with the Falcons.
He has appeared in 141 games with the Falcons. During his tenure, he has made 388 of 450 field goals.
This past season, he went 20 of 21 in field goal attempts. His longest field goal attempt that was made was 57 yards.
Besides playing for the Falcons, he also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts, and the Miami Dolphins.
