“I would be lying to say I wasn’t upset,” Bryant said, via Paul Newberry of the Associated Press. “But that’s in the past. We’re here right now. I’m going to give it all I have to help this team win.”
Tavecchio went only 4-for-9 on field goals in the preseason which cost him his chance to win the job. Bryant is 44 but is one of the best, missing just three extra points out of 375, and 32 field goals out of 282, the story said.
The Falcons play on Monday night in Week 7 so the good news is owners again have plenty of time to prepare. Coleman and Smith will again take over the workload. As for kicker, reports say Tavecchio could see the kicking duties.
