Walsh was released by the Falcons on Saturday, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Walsh lasted only a week in Atlanta, with the team ultimately deciding to re-sign franchise mainstay Matt Bryant. The ex-Viking struggled in his practice session Tuesday, hitting only five of nine tries, but it is uncertain if that performance played a major factor in the Falcons going a different direction at kicker.

Walsh succeeded on five of nine field-goal tries during his kicking session at Falcons' practice Tuesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Dan Quinn was adamant that looking too closely at practice stats is a "dangerous subject," but did concede that Walsh's performance took a dip between Monday and Tuesday. Quinn stressed that in-game results are a far stronger indicator of ability, and the coaching staff will have to make a decision on the starting kicker based on that. Giorgio Tavecchio has floundered with four missed field goals on eight opportunities thus far in the preseason slate, while Walsh enters Thursday's tilt with Jacksonville having posted a 79.9 percent conversion rate over his past five NFL seasons, after hitting 92.1 percent as a rookie.

Walsh was 21 of 29 on field-goal attempts and 37 for 38 on extra-points attempts for the Seahawks in 2017.

EDGE Analysis

Walsh's longest field goal of the season was 49 yards, and he finished the season on a sour note with a missed 48-yard field goal in the final minute of the Week 17 loss to the Cardinals. The Seahawks have already signed former-Jaguar Jason Myers to a reserve\future contract as Walsh is set to hit free agency, with his tenure in Seattle likely over.

Walsh did not attempt a field goal but made all three of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 21-12 win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Walsh has gone back-to-back games without attempting a field goal, capping his recent fantasy performances. With just 94 points on the season, however, owners shouldn't have been expecting too much from him.

EDGE Analysis

Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll reiterated support for Walsh as the team's kicker, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Walsh missed a 38-yard field goal in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, the third field goal inside 40 yards he has missed this season. Despite the inconsistency, the Seahawks will stick with the 27-year-old for the time being, with their difficult salary cap situation likely at least playing a small role.
