Falcons Have Kicking Triple Threat

While some NFL teams carry a punter, a field goal kicker and a kickoff specialist, the Atlanta Falcons have one kicking dynamo--Michael Koenen--set to perform all three tasks this season.

Koenen was the Falcons' punter and kickoff specialist last season as a rookie, and convinced Coach Jim Mora to allow him to handle field goals as well with an impressive preseason showing.

The club does have a rookie kicker, Tony Yelk, on its practice squad.
