Former Georgia punter Cameron Nizialek lands with new NFL team
Cameron Nizialek handled the punting duties for Georgia in 2017, punting 61 times and averaging 45 yards per kick.
He spent one year in Athens after handling the kicking and punting duties at Columbia University earlier in his college career.
Now, he’s getting another NFL opportunity, as the Atlanta Falcons announced via Twitter that they’d signed the former Bulldog after waiving Sterling Hofrichter:
We have waived/injured P Sterling Hofrichter and have signed P Cameron Nizialek. https://t.co/xPyROEXudN

Nizialek was on the Falcons’ practice squad for the first 3 weeks of the 2020 season, so he’s familiar with the organization. He also spent time with the Baltimore Ravens, but has yet to actually punt in an NFL game.
We’ll see if he can earn a roster spot in Atlanta this season.
