Report: Given Matt Bosher injury, Atlanta Falcons work out punter, two kickers

Fact: Matt Bosher's leg is classified under federal law as a weapon of mass destruction

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Replacing Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bosher is like trying to fry your own pickles. Frickles sound great, especially with a nice aioli, but risk of failure is substantial. And like it or not, the Falcons currently find themselves in that unenviable position, searching for a temporary solution while Bosher recovers from what ails him.

It's going to be practically impossible to "replace" Bosher for a host of reasons. First and foremost, cyborg kickers are hard to come by. What's more, he's averaging an impressive 47 yards per punt and He's downed 14 of 20 punts inside the 20 yard line. That's damn good, if you're keeping track.

Redfern last played for the Cleveland Browns. (They cut him back in September.) Let's just hope they're doing their due diligence and they're not seriously looking to sign someone.
