This Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys will get a new kicker against the Atlanta Falcons. We now know who it is.
Jon Machota from The Athletic reports that Dallas will sign Lirim Hajrullahu. He was one the two kickers who worked out for The Athletic on Wednesday.
Greg Zuerlein is currently on the Reserve/COVID-19 roster and the Cowboys need to replace him.
The Cowboys worked out kickers Brett Maher and Lirim Hajrullahu today. They are signing Hajrullahu. He will likely be the Cowboys’ kicker on Sunday against the Falcons with Greg Zuerlein on the Reserve/COVID-19 list

Hajrullahu, a 31-year-old Kosovo native, has extensive experience in the CFL. He previously served on practice squads for the Cowboys (Los Angeles Rams), and Carolina Panthers.
Although he hasn’t kicked in any NFL regular season games, he has converted more than 80% of his field goals in Canada. They chose him over Maher, their starting kicker for 2018 and 2019.
The Cowboys vs Falcons kickoff at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at AT&T Stadium
