Atlanta Falcons PK Giorgio Tavecchio likely will be the team's kicker in 2019 since PK Matt Bryant will be released.
Huddle Up: Tavecchio made all five of his field goal attempts in limited playing time this season and should be a solid fantasy option next season.

Free-agent PK Giorgio Tavecchio (Falcons) is likely to sign with the Atlanta Falcons Tuesday, Oct. 16.
Huddle Up: Tavecchio is expected to kick in place of Matt Bryant (hamstring) this week. The Falcons are at home in the dome against the New York Giants. He could be a money one-week play to cover a bye week.

The Houston Texans worked out free-agent PKs Giorgio Tavecchio (Raiders) and Nick Rose on Wednesday, Aug. 15. Both apparently did well, but Tavecchio is now under consideration to be signed.
Huddle Up: Tavecchio played for special teams coach Brad Seely in Oakland. Apparently Ka'imi Fairbairn is dealing with some type of short-term injury, so it's unclear if Tavecchio will be given a real shot to replace him or the team simply wants him just for the next preseason game. No fantasy appeal here, at least not yet.

Oakland Raiders exclusive rights free-agent PK Giorgio Tavecchio is expected to receive a tender offer this offseason.
Huddle Up: Tavecchio played well this season after joining the Raiders and will be the leading candidate for the job next season. He has the chance to be a low-end No. 1 kicker in deeper fantasy leagues.

The Oakland Raiders signed PK Giorgio Tavecchio to an undisclosed contract Monday, Feb. 23.
Huddle Up: The move provides a little competition for Sebastian Janikowski--and officially gives the Raiders the most jersey letters devoted to kickers

The Oakland Raiders claimed PK Giorgio Tavecchio (Lions) off waivers Tuesday, Aug. 26.
Huddle Up: Tavecchio made a strong run at the Lions' PK job and has been added as insurance in case Sebastian Janikowski's quad injury sidelines him past the preseason.

Detroit Lions Ks Giorgio Tavecchio and Nate Freese both missed field-goal attempts from nearly 50 yards during practice Tuesday, July 29, and the two remain in a tight competition for the starting kicking job.
Huddle Up: No rush here, and don't expect things to be decided until most -- if not all -- of the preseason has run its course.

The Cleveland Browns will bring in free-agent PK Giorgio Tavecchio (Packers) for a tryout Tuesday, Sept. 2. Former Ravens PK Billy Cundiff also will try out.
Huddle Up: Cleveland entered the week without a kicker and had it sights set on Dan Carpenter, but he has signed with the Bills. Now it's down to the 10th-year NFL vet and the college free agent.
