Koo will be an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason, which "practically guarantees" he'll be back with the Falcons for 2021, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Players who reach the end of their contracts with less than three accrued seasons in the NFL become ERFAs. These players don't actually have any negotiating power, as they can only play for their original team, so long as the team tenders them a minimum salary. Koo's impressive performance the past two years ensures he'll get that tender, unless he receives a long-term extension first. Either way, he figures to be Atlanta's kicker in 2021, hoping to build on a 2020 campaign in which he converted 37 of 39 field-goal attempts and 33 of 36 point-after attempts.
