After a year out of the NFL, kicker Blair Walsh is joining the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced Saturday.
In 2013, Walsh tied the record for most consecutive 50-plus yard FGs (11) before breaking it in Week 4 against the Steelers.
His last action came with the Seahawks in the 2017 season, arguably his worst campaign. Walsh made 21 of his 29 FG attempts, including a missed game-winning FG in a late-season contest in which the team was competing for a playoff spot.
Duarte, 24, comes to Atlanta after being waived on May 13 by the Panthers. Duarte was drafted in 2016 by the Dolphins where he was both on the practice squad and active roster during a two-year span. He was on the Chargers practice squad in 2018 and played for the AAF's Arizona Hotshots earlier this year.
