Cardinals' Brett Maher: Staying in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher signed a reserve/future contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Maher signed to the Cardinals' practice squad on Christmas Day and will now get an opportunity to stick with the team throughout the offseason. Veteran kicker Zane Gonzalez is slated to enter free agency this offseason, which could open the door to Maher in the future.

Brett Maher: Signs with practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals signed Maher to the practice squad Friday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

Zane Gonzalez (back) is out for the rest of the regular season, and Mike Nugent has taken his place as the Cardinals' starting kicker in the meantime. Nugent has been perfect, hitting all five field-goal attempts and all six extra-point tries, so Maher is merely an emergency kicker option as the Cardinals make their playoff push. The 31-year-old played 13 games for Dallas last year, connecting on 20 of 30 field-goal attempts and all 36 extra-point tries.

Brett Maher: Gets look in Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher visited the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Maher was cut from the Texans' practice squad Monday. He could immediately fit in with the Buccaneers, who currently have kicker Ryan Succop on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Maher has enough time to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols and kick for the Buccaneers in Sunday's game against the Falcons. He last played for the Cowboys in 2019, when he made 20 of 30 field-goal attempts (67 percent) and all 36 extra-point tries.

Brett Maher: Parts ways with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher was waived from the Texans' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Maher has been with Houston's practice squad since mid-October, but his run in the organization came without a regular-season appearance. Ka'imi Fairbairn has been able to avoid missing any time thus far in 2020, keeping Maher from the field. The Nebraska product struggled during his second season with the Cowboys in 2019, converting just 20 of 30 field-goal tries.

Brett Maher: Heads to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Maher to the practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Houston's starting kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn has been perfect over the last three weeks, drilling nine field goals and nine extra points without a miss. Maher will add depth in case things get derailed. Last season with the Cowboys, Maher connected on 20 of 30 field goals and hit all 36 extra-point attempts.

Brett Maher: Visits with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans recently brought Maher in for a visit, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Houston's current placekicker, Ka'imi Fairbairn, has missed just one kick in 2020 and is successful on 83.8 percent of his field-goal attempts during his career. It's unclear if Houston is looking to make a change. Maher has spent time with the Jets, Cowboys, the Browns and the Washington football team during his time in the NFL, and he's also put in time in the Canadian Football League.

Brett Maher: Cut from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington released Maher from the practice squad Wednesday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Maher spent most of September on Washington's practice squad, but he'll now need to search for a reserve role with another club. He appeared in 29 games with the Cowboys from 2018 to 2019.

Brett Maher: Heads to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher joined Washington's practice squad Thursday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Maher stands to provide Washington with emergency depth behind Dustin Hopkins. He appeared in 13 contests with the Cowboys last season, converting 20 of 30 field-goal tries.

Brett Maher: Cut loose by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets released Maher on Monday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Sam Ficken is left as the lone kicker on the roster, while Maher will hope to catch on elsewhere at some point this season. The transaction frees up a roster spot for veteran wideout Donte Moncrief.

Jets' Brett Maher: Competing for job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher is competing with Sam Ficken for the Jets' starting kicking job, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Maher was released by the Cowboys after missing 10 of his 30 field-goal attempts through 13 games last season. In joining the Jets, he's aiming to regain a starting job at the expense of Ficken, who struggled himself last term, missing 11 kicks in 15 appearances for New York.

Jets' Brett Maher: Signs futures contract with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher signed a reserve/futures contract with the Jets.

Maher struggled with the Cowboys this season, making just 20 of his 30 field-goal tries in 13 games before getting cut in favor of Kai Forbath. The former Cornhusker will get a shot at redemption with New York in 2020.

Brett Maher: Works out with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams held a workout for Maher this week, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Greg Zuerlein, the team's long-time kicker, has been unable to practice this week due to a strained quadriceps. Listed as questionable for Saturday's game in San Francisco, he's slated to suit up, but ultimately his availability will be determined Friday, when he'll kick for the first time this week, per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com. If things don't go as planned, Maher appears to be the contingency plan following his recent tryout.

Brett Maher: Let go by Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys cut Maher on Monday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Maher, who missed one of his two field-goal attempts Week 14, made 20 of his 30 tries overall this season, while adding 36 extra points (in as many tries) prior to being cut. He'll be replaced by Kai Forbath.

Cowboys' Brett Maher: Facing more competition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys are again hosting free agent kickers for workouts Monday, indicating that Maher's position with the team may not be secure, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Maher has missed a league-leading 10 field goals this season, prompting Dallas to bring in Kai Forbath, Tristan Vizcaino and Nick Rose for workouts. The team also worked out three kickers last week. Coming off a three-game losing streak, the Cowboys may opt to cut Maher in the hopes of landing a more reliable kicker.

Cowboys' Brett Maher: May lose job after another miss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jason Garrett suggested Maher could lose his job after another poor showing in Thursday's 31-24 loss to the Bears, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. "We decided to give Brett an opportunity this week," Garrett said Friday. "It didn't work out. So we have to take a real close, hard look at that."

The Cowboys brought in three kickers at the beginning of the week but decided not to sign any of them. Maher then failed to connect on a field goal Thursday, pushing his league-high total to 10 misses for the season. Impressive leg strength may not be enough to save his job this time around, with the Cowboys presumably hoping to find someone more reliable.

Cowboys' Brett Maher: Keeping kicking job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher will remain the Cowboys' kicker for the team's upcoming game Thursday versus the Bears, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

After Maher missed two field goals in the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bills to drop to a 67.8 percent FG rate for the season, Dallas brought three kickers in for workouts over the weekend. The team's brass apparently decided that sticking with Maher was the best option for another week, though he won't exactly have a favorable bounce-back spot as the Cowboys head outdoors to Soldier Field.

Cowboys' Brett Maher: Job on notice after rough outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys are working out three kickers Sunday, an indication that Maher's standing on the 53-man roster could be on shaky ground, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

After missing seven field-goal attempts in the Cowboys' first 11 games, Maher might have hit a new low in Dallas' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bills. Though he knocked down his lone extra-point try, Maher had a 35-yard field-goal attempt blocked late in the second quarter and was a wide right on an attempt from 47 yards in the third quarter. Dallas will evaluate the auditioning kickers Sunday and could sign one of the trio, a development that would likely spell an end to Maher's time in the organization.

Cowboys' Brett Maher: Keeps job despite struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher will continue as the Cowboys' kicker, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Even though coach Jason Garrett said the club would evaluate the kicker position after Thursday's loss to the Bills, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team would stand by Maher after he missed both of his field-goal tries in the loss. The 29-year-old has made just 19 of his 28 field-goal attempts on the year and has missed three in the last two games, both Dallas losses.

Cowboys' Brett Maher: Scores all Cowboys points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher connected on three of four field goals in Sunday's 13-9 loss to the Patriots.

Kicking in fairly miserable conditions on a rainy day in Foxboro, Maher missed from 46 yards out midway through the first quarter but bounced back to successfully convert his remaining chances. It was the first time all year the Cowboys failed to score a touchdown, so don't be surprised if Maher gets more PATs and fewer FGs in Week 13's home tilt against the Bills.

Cowboys' Brett Maher: Perfect in win over Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher connected on both his field-goal attempts and all three of his PATs in Sunday's 35-27 win over the Lions.

The field goals were from 30 and 34 yards. It's only the fourth time all year Maher has booted multiple field goals, but his fantasy potential remains strong riding shotgun for a dynamic Cowboys offense -- he's gotten multiple FG attempts in six straight games and converted at least three PATs in eight of 10 contests.
