News: Bryant connected with 29-of-32 field goal attempts in 2014.
Impact: Bryant proved accurate as ever in 2014, as his only misses came from 53 yards, 57 yards and 59 yards. 2014 was the only season in his 13-year career that he was perfect from 49 yards or closer. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and although he may have to leave the comfort of a dome, there's likely more than a few contenders who would be interested in a reliable veteran kicker.
