Bryant is known as one of the top kickers in the NFL. Bryant scored his 1,000th point with the franchise last season on a game-winning 52-yard field goal to beat the Saints in December. In 2017, Bryant was a perfect 38-for-38 on extra points and 39-of-44 on field goals, including going 10-of-11 on field goal attempts over 50 yards.
