Shayne Graham will be released, Matt Bryant to keep his job

The steady veteran kicker will kick at least one more season with the Falcons.

Matt Bryant’s injury made things more interesting than they otherwise would have been, but in the end, it appears he’ll keep his job as Atlanta’s kicker in 2016.

Bryant had a bit of an injury-marred down season a year ago, but he’s been one of the league’s most reliable kickers for years now, and the steady veteran shouldn’t have much trouble bouncing back in what should be a more productive Falcons’ offense. Graham, meanwhile, will likely remain on the team’s emergency contact list unless someone scoops him up.

Glad you’re here, Matt Bryant.
