The Cowboys were unhappy with the kickers that they brought to training camp this summer, so they’ve decided to reach into their past to bring a new competitor into the mix.

According to multiple reports, the Cowboys are set to sign Brett Maher after a Tuesday workout. Undrafted rookie Jonathan Garibay will be waived to make room for Maher, which leaves Lirim Hajrullahu as Maher’s rival for the kicking job.

Maher had a summer stint with the Cowboys in 2013 before returning to kick in 29 games over the 2018 and 2019 seasons. He was 49-of-66 on field goals and 68-of-69 on extra points before being released late in the 2019 season. He was 16-of-18 on field goals and 10-of-12 on extra points in eight games for the Saints last season.

Garibay had a memorable highlight at Texas Tech last season when he won a game with a 62-yard field goal, but his continued misses in training camp practices sealed his fate with the Cowboys.
