According to ESPN.com, Falcons kicker Matt Bryant is frustrated that the lockout is lingering, it’s understandable because Bryant, who had a great 2010 season, long ago should have had a new contract. He should know where he’s going to have his family settled when a big event comes in the fall, but, like a lot of other players out there, Bryant has no clue what’s going on.
“I can do all the research in the world,’’ Bryant said. “What I say or do isn’t going to fix the problem. But I just want to understand why my childhood dream and the way I make my living is in such jeopardy.’’
Unless something happens very quickly, Bryant’s going to have to make a very difficult decision soon. He’s a free agent and, although the Falcons have said they’d like to re-sign him and his preference is to remain in Atlanta, no deal was reached before the lockout and there’s no guarantee one will be reached if and when it is lifted.
