Falcons Trying Out Kickers Younghoe Koo & Elliott Fry

Zach Klein of WSB, citing a league source, reports that the Falcons are bringing in free agent kickers Elliott Fry and Younghoe Koo for workouts with veteran Matt Bryant struggling this year.

On the season, Bryant is 9 of 14 (64.3 percent) in field goal attempts to go along with 14 of 15 in extra point tries over the course of seven games.

Koo, 25, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern back in 2017. He was set to make a base salary of $465,000 for the 2017 season when the Chargers waived him a few weeks into the season.

After a stint with the AAF’s Atlanta Legends, the Patriots signed Koo to their practice squad. However, he was released a few weeks ago. 

In 2017, Koo appeared in four games for the Chargers and converted just three of six field goal attempts and all nine extra point tries.

Fry, 24, wound up going undrafted out of South Carolina back in 2017. Fry joined the Orlando Apollos of the now-defunct AAF this past spring and converted all 14 field goals he attempted with a long of 44 yards.

The Bears signed him to a contract this offseason before cutting him loose during the preseason. He had a brief stint with the Ravens, but was among their roster cuts this past August. 

During his four-year college career, Fry converted 66 of 88 field goal attempts (75 percent) to go along with 161 of 162 extra point tries (99.4 percent) over the course of 51 games.
