FLOWERY BRANCH — The Atlanta Falcons are looking at alternatives for slumping kicker Jason Elam.

The Falcons brought Steve Hauschka, Sam Swant and Shane Andrus and former Georgia standout Brandon Coutu to their practice facility for tryouts on Tuesday.

Hauschka, Swant and Andrus have NFL experience. Coutu was drafted by Seattle in 2008, but did not make the team. The 39-year-old Elam has made only 10 of 16 field goals this season and ranks 30th in the league.
