After a decade of having one of the best kickers in football, it seems as if Matt Bryant’s prime is behind him.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Atlanta Falcons have released Matt Bryant and signed Younghoe Koo.

The 44-year-old, 17-year veteran was the most accurate kicker in football for a stretch, but has missed a slew of critical field goals and extra points this season, leaving the Falcons no choice.

Koo last spent time on the Patriots practice squad.
