3. K Brett Maher (Rams)

The kicker position was a sensitive point of conversation last offseason. The Cowboys made the obvious decision to move on from Brett Maher after his all-time playoff choke. He missed four extra points in Dallas' Wild Card triumph against the Buccaneers before missing another in the following round vs the 49ers.

It's no surprise Maher struggled to find work and bounced around multiple teams. He initially inked a one-year deal with the Broncos but got booted after head coach Sean Payton traded for former Saints kicker Wil Lutz during preseason.

Maher eventually found a home with the Rams. At one point, he tied for third in NFL scoring with 63 points while drilling 17-of-23 field goals and 12-of-13 extra points. However, he got released after missing an extra point and two field goals in a loss at home to the Steelers.

Ironically, the Rams re-signed Maher to replace his replacement, Lucas Havrisik after Havrisik shanked two XPs against the Giants. It's unclear what the future holds for Maher, but 2023 was an expected turbulent season for the former Cowboy.
