Cut late in his second Cowboys season, Brett Maher has surfaced on the workout circuit. The Titans brought in the young kicker for a Thursday audition, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com (on Twitter).
Maher made just 20 of 30 field goals this season, but two of those makes came from beyond 60 yards. The Titans have kicker Ryan Succop finishing out his sixth season with the franchise.
If signed, Maher could be a practice squad developmental project or an insurance option. However, Tennessee’s roster already houses both Succop and Ryan Santoso, who handles kickoffs for the team. Succop missed the first half of the Titans’ season due to injury and has made just 1 of 5 field goals upon returning. Maher’s leg strength is certainly not in question, so he would eliminated the need to have two kickers on the active roster.
A UDFA out of Nebraska, Maher also connected on a 60-plus-yard field goal as a rookie. Despite first kicking in an NFL game last season, the 30-year-old spent time on NFL rosters as far back as 2013 but did his pre-Cowboys in-game work with multiple CFL franchises.
