TAMPA BAY, Fla. -- The Athletic's Jeff Schultz reported after Sunday night's loss to Tampa Bay that the Falcons would be bringing in punters, and holding tryouts for them this week.

This news comes after Nizialek shanked two punts against the Buccaneers.

The punting situation in Atlanta has been rocky throughout the last year. The Falcons drafted Sterling Hofrichter in 2020 but released him this August. The front office brought in Dom Maggio this offseason to compete with Hofrichter for the spot, but he was waived from the injured reserve list with a settlement at the beginning of the month. So, Nizialek won the job.

However, reports are noting the Falcons could be looking to move on from Nizialek as early as this week following Sunday's performance.
