Huddle Up: He'll likely supplant Giorgio Tavecchio as the starting kicker, and Bryant will have some low-end PK1 appeal.

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant was released Wednesday, Feb. 6. He had two years and $7 million remaining on his contract. Cutting Bryant saves Atlanta nearly $3 million in 2019 salary cap space. PK Giorgio Tavecchio is expected to be the starting kicker for the Falcons next season. He will earn $645,000 in 2019 .
Huddle Up: Bryant may be old in football years (he turns 44 this offseason), but he made 20 of 21 field goals in 13 games last season. He's not off the fantasy radar just yet.
