Brett Maher, a veteran in the NFL, is currently in his tenth season. Maher was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets in 2013, and he has since played for the Dallas Cowboys, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Ottawa Redblacks, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Cleveland Browns, Washington Football Team, Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals, among others.
How Good Is Brett Maher?
Brett Maher is one of the most experienced punters/kickers in the league. This season, Maher has made 10 of his 11 field goals; his lone miss came last week against the Giants, just before halftime, on a 59-yard attempt.
Maher made successful kicks from 53, 45, 29, and 28 yards against the Commanders on Sunday. It does not count as a miss since one of his two extra points was blocked. Maher currently holds the second-best percentage among all NFL kickers this season with nine or more FG attempts, sitting at 90.9%.
Maher needs to maintain kicking with a lot of assurance; if he does, he will have the best season of his career, kick for the club the next year, and perhaps even make the Pro Bowl.
