Cowboys Cut Kicker Brett Maher, Sign Forbath

Brett Maher

Maher has missed 10 field goals this season, the most in a season by an National Football League kicker in the past four seasons.

The Dallas Cowboys have waived struggling kicker Brett Maher and replaced him with eight-year veteran Kai Forbath. They worked out kickers again after Maher missed a field goal Thursday in the loss to the Chicago Bears.

I'll have whatever he's having.

The Cowboys cut struggling placekicker Brett Maher and signed free agent Kai Forbath, the team confirmed on Monday.

The team was not as approving of his outing in Chicago as Maher was, however, as evidenced in head coach Jason Garrett's declaration the Cowboys would take a "hard look" at the position after yet another disappointing week. He has covered the Texas Rangers since 2014 and started reporting on the Dallas Cowboys in 2016. It's the most misses in a season in the last four years of the NFL. Last season, he was 7 of 11 in the 40 to 49-yard range and 6 of 8 in the 30 to 39-yard range.

All he had to do is prove he's better than Maher, along with Rose and Vizcaino, and the job was his.

Forbath is a career 85.8-percent kicker who has spent time on five teams, most recently the Patriots for one game for an injured Nick Folk. He'll end his near two-year stint hitting on 49 of his 66 field goal attempts this season and holds a franchise record after nailing a 63-yarder against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week Seven.

Now sitting at 6-7 and in jeopardy of not making the playoffs, and being quickly dismissed if they do make it, a change had to be made somewhere. The former CFL kicker would finish his rookie season hitting 29 of his 36 field-goal tries (80.6) in 2018.
