Study: Bosher Among NFL's Strongest Punters

As a punter who was drafted in the sixth round and signed to a five-year contract in 2014, Matt Bosher is expected to be one of the league's best at his position. A recent study conducted by a Vikings blog shows Atlanta's special teams ace was exactly that last season.

According to the first part of study, Bosher had the NFL's strongest leg in 2015, averaging 52.6 yards per punt when 65-plus yards away from the opponent's end zone. He was more than a full yard ahead of second place, Miami's Matt Darr (51.8), and 4.6 yards above the league-wide average.

This shouldn't be surprising to those who have followed Bosher's career with the Falcons. He's averaged 45.7 yards per punt per better in every campaign but his first; last year, he booted a career-long 69-yarder, good for sixth in the league.

And, as a 28-year-old signed through 2019, it's safe to say that Atlanta has a sensational punter locked up long-term.
