  Bears | Chicago unlikely to pursue Matt Bryant    Fri Jun 7, 06:39 PM

Free-agent PK Matt Bryant (Falcons) likely will not be an option for the Chicago Bears since he has not handled kickoff duties since 2008 and has not kicked for a cold-weather outdoor team since 2003, in the opinion of The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs.

Footballguys view: The Bears should wait until final cuts and add one of the kickers that loses a kicker battle, but performs well this summer. Bryant is proven, but it sounds like he would be a bad fit on the Bears.

  Falcons | Matt Bryant to start kicking again    Tue Aug 21, 11:25 PM

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (undisclosed) will kick during practice Wednesday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Bryant kicked in practice last week, but did not play in the second preseason game. While he has been ranked as a Top 5 kicker, if he doesn't kick in the third preseason game, he'll be a risky proposition at any ADP.

  Falcons | Matt Bryant day-to-day    Sun Aug 19, 03:21 PM

Atlanta Falcons PK Matt Bryant (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day because of an undisclosed injury.

Footballguys view: Bryant still hasn't played yet in the preseason. He is going off of the board in the top five kickers, which seems too high while we are waiting for him to prove he's healthy enough to play in Week 1. Rookie UDFA David Marvin missed a kick in the second preseason game, if there's a problem with Bryant, the team would likely look outside of the organization for a kicker.
