The Atlanta Falcons announced Saturday that they have agreed to terms with veteran kicker Matt Bryant.

In 2018, the 17-year veteran converted 20 of his 21 field goal attempts and 33 of 35 of his extra points. He also connected on four of his five kicks from 50-plus yards, including a season-best 57-yard kick against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

Bryant has scored a franchise-record 1,122 points since joining the Falcons in 2009, which ranks third in the NFL over that span. In 2016, he was named to his first career Pro Bowl after converting 34 of 37 field goal attempts, including a 59-yarder, while adding 56 extra points. The former Baylor Bear led the league in scoring that season with 158 points, setting a new franchise record.

NLF Network analyst Ian Rapoport had some financial details.

Bryant had some fun with the not-so-well-kept-secret on Twitter.
