The Falcons and Bryant agreed to a three-year extension Monday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant's lengthy career continues onward. After splitting the first seven years in the NFL with four different organizations, the 42-year-old just completed his ninth campaign with the Falcons, during which he's racked up at least 111 points in his seven full seasons with the squad. In 2016, in particular, Bryant notched a league-leading 158 points in the backs of a whopping 56 extra points and 37 field goals en route to an appearance in Super Bowl LI. With a commitment through the 2020 season, he'll have a chance to continue marching up the ranks of all-time leading scorers (he ranks 17th, as of the conclusion of 2017).

Bryant clarified Friday that he has no intentions of retiring just yet, saying "I'll play two-three more years in this league", Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant has now finished as a top-5 fantasy kicker in standard leagues for the second consecutive season after converting on 34 of his 39 field-goal attempts in 2017. With his contract expiring over the offseason, the Falcons have a decision to make as to whether or not they want to bring back the reliable veteran, who will turn 43 in May.

Bryant connected on a 33-yard field goal and an extra point in a 15-10 divisional round loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant was superb again this year, as the 41-year-old connected on 34-of-39 kicks, including a mesmerizing 17-of-19 from over 40 yards. He'll be 42 this offseason, and he's no longer under contract, so it's certainly possible that we've seen him kick in his final professional game. That being said, if he wants to come back, the Falcons would certainly give him a chance to earn the job and kick in what would be his 17th professional season.

Bryant connected on all four field goal attempts and both extra points in Saturday's 26-13 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

The kicks weren't chip shots either, as two of his field goal attempts were longer than 50 yards. The veteran kicker may be kicking in worse conditions in the Divisional Round in Philadelphia, but he has to be considered one of the most reliable kicking options left in the playoffs.

Bryant hit a 57-yard field goal and three extra points in Monday's 24-21 win over Tampa Bay.

EDGE Analysis

The 57-yard field goal was a thing of beauty, but Bryant uncharacteristically had a 33-yard field goal blocked late in the third quarter. He has a good match up in Week 16 in a dome against the Saints.

Bryant (back) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant has made a number of appearances on the injury report this season but has yet to miss a game. While his volume hasn't approached last season's level, he's been as reliable as ever with the chances he's had, converting 21 of 24 field-goal attempts and each of his 28 PATs.

Bryant (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant has made an unusual number of injury report appearances for a kicker, but he's yet to actually miss a game and has been just as accurate as ever. The only cause for concern is the fact that he dealt with a back injury earlier this season, but there hasn't been any suggestion that his recent flare-up is serious.
