As he announced via his Twitter, Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant isn’t retiring anytime soon.
Over this past year I’ve been asked numerous times about retirement and how I feel. Well, I’m not retiring and I feel fine and plan on feeling even better with some changes to my offseason program!— matt bryant (@Matt_Bryant3) February 6, 2019
Why would he? Bryant finished the 2018 season with the 3rd best field goal percentage in the NFL, making 95.2% of his kicks. That percentage is the best of Bryant’s career when he has 20+ attempts in a season.
Even as he gets older, “Money” is still as reliable a kicker as he’s always been. He’s without a doubt the best kicker in Atlanta Falcons history, as he holds the franchise record for:
· Field Goals Made (250)
· Extra Points Made (372)
· Field Goal percentage with at least 100 attempts (88.7%)
Nobody knows what will happen between Matt Bryant and the Falcons, because at the end of the day, the NFL is a business. Giorgio Tavecchio is under contract, too.
Regardless of what occurs in the future, I know Falcons fans around the country are appreciative of the many seasons Matt Bryant and his family have given to the city of Atlanta. Hopefully he finishes out his career as a Falcon, because I personally loathe the day we run out of Money.
