  • Matt Wile: Waived from practice squad

    Wile was released from the Lions' practice squad Saturday.

    Wile was signed to the team's practice squad on Nov. 6 as insurance in the event that Sam Martin (abdomen) was unavailable for Week 10. However, Martin appears ready to go, allowing the Lions to use their practice squad space for other purposes. Wile has already been a part of a number of teams in the 2019 season, including the Vikings, Falcons and Lions.

  • Matt Wile: Lands on Detroit's practice squad

    Wile (quadriceps) signed with the Lions' practice squad Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the team's official site reports.

    The 27-year-old was waived with an injury settlement by the Falcons in mid-October, but he appears to have recovered from the quad injury. Wile may serve as the team's practice punter while Sam Martin nurses an abdominal injury, and he could make his way to the active roster should the injury linger.

  • Matt Wile: Parts ways with Atlanta

    Wile (quadriceps) was waived by the Falcons with an injury settlement Tuesday.

    Wile signed with the Falcons earlier in October, as starting punter Matt Bosher (groin) was sidelined, but he'll now be let go while dealing with his own injury. Bosher has since move to injured reserve while Kasey Redfern serves as Atlanta's punter.

  • Falcons' Matt Wile: Ruled out for Week 6

    Wile (quadriceps) will not play in Atlanta's Week 5 matchup against the Cardinals, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Atlanta is now down to "Plan C" at punter for Sunday, as starter Matt Bosher (groin), too, will miss the road trip to Arizona after landing on injured reserve Oct. 5. The Falcons seem to be leaning on Kasey Redfern as a replacement. Redfern may eventually also be fielding snaps as holder, as it has been the team's tendency over recent seasons to have the punter take on that responsibility.

  • Matt Wile: Out in Atlanta

    Wile was let go from the Falcons' practice squad Tuesday, per the team's official Twitter account.

    After punting for Atlanta in Week 3 while Matt Bosher was nursing a groin injury, Wile was retained on the practice squad as a precautionary measure heading into Sunday's game against the Titans. With Bosher having played in Week 4 and now a full participant in practice, the Falcons parted with Wile to acquire developmental players Ahmad Thomas and Lukayus McNeil at positions of greater need.

  • Matt Wile: Back on Atlanta's practice squad

    Wile was signed to Atlanta's practice squad after being waived by the team Monday, per the Falcons' official Twitter account.

    Wile is back with the practice squad after a two-day hiatus from the team. He joined Atlanta's practice squad last week as insurance for Matt Bosher (groin), who ultimately proved unable to go against the Colts in Week 3 due to injury. Bosher returned to practice as a limited participant Wednesday, and if he misses his second consecutive game Sunday against the Titans, Wile is on hand to step in after pinning Indianapolis inside its own 10-yard line on his only punt last week.

  • Falcons' Matt Wile: Bumped up from practice squad

    Wile is being elevated from the Falcons' practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    The 27-year-old punter is being called up for what could be a spot start, or a multi-week audition depending on how quickly Matt Bosher (groin) is able to return from injury. Wile was briefly a Falcon when he filled in for Bosher in 2016 under similar circumstances, but more recently, he punted to an average of 45.2 yards per attempt as the Vikings' starter last year.

The 27-year-old appeared in all 16 games for Minnesota in 2018, averaging 45.2 yards per punt.

  • Falcons' Matt Wile: Signs with Falcons

    Wile signed a contract with the Falcons on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old has spent time with the Panthers and Cowboys since coming into the league, but he has never recorded a punt in the regular season.
