DALLAS, Texas (KETK) “In Maher, we don’t trust”. The Dallas Cowboys will have a new kicker when they take the field against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

Reports say the Cowboys have released Brett Maher and brought in Kai Forbath, a former Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings kicker.

The 32-year-old, seven year veteran played college ball and UCLA.

This change comes after Maher missed a 42-yard field goad against the Chicago Bears last week.

That makes 10 in the 2019 season.

Forbath is no stranger to the Cowboys organization.

He was in camp back in 2011, but lost the starting job to Dan Bailey.
