The Falcons signed punter Sam Irwin-Hill to the 90-man roster Friday.

The team tried to sign the Australian native during the season, but he had visa issues. He was briefly on the practice squad.

With punter Matt Bosher battling groin injuries, the Falcons used four punters and tried to sign Irwin-Hill while practicing out in Phoenix before facing the Cardinals.

Bosher was eventually placed on injured reserve with was was called a right groin injury Oct. 5. 

Bosher is set to become a free agent in March.

Irwin-Hill played at Arkansas before signing with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2017.

Ryan Allen finished the season as the punter while Kasey Redfern and Matt Wile also punted for the Falcons in 2019.
