It’s open competition for the specialists in Cowboys camp.
The Dallas Cowboys have kicker problems.
Ever since the release of Dan Bailey, Cowboys fans have felt a little uneasy whenever Brett Maher trots onto the field. The former CFL kicker surprised everyone by winning the kicker job last September, and it’s been a mixed bag to say the least. Sure, Maher’s got the leg, last year he wasted no time taking over first and second place for the longest kick in Cowboys history. Interestingly, he jumped the two kickers that beat him out for a job when he entered the league in 2013.
In 2013, Brett Maher was was signed as an UDFA (Jets), but couldn't win job over Billy Cundiff. Then, he signed with the Cowboys, but couldn't win job over Dan Bailey.Longest FG in Cowboys history before 2018:56 - Cundiff56 - BaileyLongest FG now:62 - Maher 59 - Maher

It wouldn’t surprise if he ended up breaking Matt Prater’s NFL’s record for longest kick of 64 yards.
