FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons have announced that they have released kicker Matt Bryant, the leading scorer in team history.

Bryant missed two field goals during Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, one from 51 yards out and the other from 53 yards out. 

After the game, head coach Dan Quinn suggested that the team may be ready to make a change. 

Bryant was 9 for 14 on field-goal attempts this season. 

The team had parted ways with the veteran kicker at the end of the 2018 season, but his replacement, Giorgio Tavecchio struggled during the preseason, prompting the team to bring the veteran back just before the start of this season.

With the team releasing Bryant, they have agreed to terms with kicker Younghoe Koo. 

Koo, who attended Georgia Southern, previously played in the NFL as a member of the Los Angeles Chargers, and most recently was a member of the Alliance of American Football's Atlanta Legends, where he was a perfect 14-for-14 on field goal attempts. 

The team worked out with Koo and Elliott Fry on Monday before signing Koo on Tuesday.
